Anyway. We played baby charades which was amusing. Amusing because it's always fun to see what people will do under the guise of "acting it out." The friend who is having the baby did an Oscar worthy silent interpretation of putting butt cream on a baby's a$$. It was her two-fingered approach that made one of our team members (it might have been me) scream "DIAPER CREAM!"
But, here's the thing. The words we had to act out (that I can remember) were: diaper cream, stroller, baby food, diaper, diaper genie, wipes, baby backpack, robe (I had this one and made the mistake of buttoning rather than tying my robe which prevented any of my teammates from guessing the word. They were screaming at me, "WHO BUTTONS A BABY'S ROBE???" My question to them was, "WHOSE BABY WEARS A FREAKING ROBE??? HUGH HEFNER'S? Cheesus.).
Now, it's been nearly six years since I had an infant underfoot (figuratively), but I have a somewhat different memory of how infancy went down. Here are a few words and situations that I'd like to see on the cards in a baby shower charade game.
- cleaning around the future bellybutton
- sore nipples
- ear infection
- projectile vomiting
- poop outside the diaper
- breast pump
- being peed on while changing a diaper
- peeing while balancing a nursing baby
- brushing your teeth for the first time in a week
- severe sleep deprivation
- carpal tunnel from carrying the car seat
- spit-up stains
Might as well get an early start with it?
