Things have certainly changed since I gave birth to my first child nearly twenty years ago. I didn’t have a reveal party, or get a push present, or host a sip-n-see after my daughter was born. It was all I could do to hold it together, what with all the crying and wailing….coming from me…for probably the first three months, OK four. I had no idea what I was doing and on top of that, my precious little bundle of joy had colic. Not only was I not in a celebratory mood, I considered running away from home.
Fast forward twenty years. I survived the newborn stage. Four times. And now my oldest is having a baby of her very own. How fun this will be! For me! I mean, I get to do all the cool stuff and ooh, and ahh, and cuddle and snuggle the teeny infant and then pass off the little bugger when he starts crying. Or poops!
Early in her pregnancy my daughter expressed an interest in having a reveal party and asked if I would help host it. Of course I was all, “Yes! I would love to! What’s a reveal party?”
Thanks to Google and the invention of Pinterest, I now know. And I’m sharing what I learned with you!
