One of the things you don’t think about until times are a little rough is how many kind people there are around you. Having a baby is one of those rough times, especially when the baby arrives unexpectedly early!
It’s not that I try hard to figure out secrets, I just tend to have “funny feelings” that pan out. So, surprise parties are pretty hard to do for me. Some people are able to do it, like when my coworkers threw me a bridal shower. It was really sweet, unexpected, and I was definitely surprised. For this shower, I knew that we were getting together with our friends the day before my birthday. K had mentioned that they might want to do some sort of shower or gift thing at some point. So….I wasn’t sure if this get-together would be to celebrate my birthday or the baby, or just be part of the gathering. It just seemed a little too coincidental to be the day before my birthday. But, I was still surprised at how much work they did for the party! When I entered the house, I was greeted with a “surprise!” and my response was laughing and saying “what am I supposed to be surprised about?”. I really had no idea what was going on. Like I said, I’m a bit hard to throw surprise parties for. Haha.
