Baby Shower Surprises

So last weekend, I enjoyed my afternoon at a baby shower for our niece, Ashley. 
We did the usual, eat and visit, take our best guess at when the baby will truly arrive, eat and visit a little more and play a few silly games.  Well, I don't usually win any of the baby shower games, you'd think I could since I have plenty of my own little ones...???
Anyway, on this particular day, I was one of the WINNERS!!!
I found it a tad bit interesting that as Ashley and Christy (my sis in-law) were handing the "prize or gift" over to me they were laughing hysterically...why would a person be laughing that I won the game? 
This should have been my first clue that maybe I wouldn't want to open this little pink paper sack to unveil the hidden gift...
But I'm not super bright at times, so away I went opening this cute little package.
Inside was a little box that I'm pretty sure this body should never have to use again...I've definitely used my fair share of these little do-dads!  The laughter was something at that point!!!

I made sure to point out to all of them that I had no intention of ever needing this handy little box again (not that I don't love those precious little bundles, but this body's days of making babies is past...if you want to just hand one on over to me, I'd take it in a heartbeat, but not if that little bundle needs to come out of my body again)  I think my hubby would be signing me up at my first appointment for a c-section...he never wants to see me go through another labor & delivery...

So, maybe winning the prize after a game isn't all it's cracked up to be....
Next time, I'll just be content to watch others win and I'll do what I do a little and visit a lot!
