Wordful Wednesday - Derby Girl Baby Shower

If one of our derby girls is not on skates, it's usually for one of two reasons. They're either pregnant or out with an ankle or knee injury. I prefer not to be either at any time.

We recently held a baby shower for one of our girls due next month. After all the strife that our team has been through lately, it was refreshing to Be Calm and Carry On.

One thing the girls did was decorate a bib for the Mom to Be and sign our names on the back. The Mom now has several bibs for her baby boy, decorated by us. Mine was nothing extraordinary by any means. I'm lucky to draw a stick figure.

One game consisted of having teams of two and using toilet paper to make a diaper for our partner. Not only can't I not draw, I can't diaper an adult either! (Notice the cast on the girl in front. Yep, ankle injury!)

I busted into hysterics when three girls were required to blow up a balloon and tuck it into their shirts to resemble a pregnancy belly. They then had to sit on the couch and bend over to tie a pair of tennis shoes. Of all ironies, a girl that's five months pregnant anyways won with the added balloon belly.

Do you enjoy attending baby showers? What are your favorite baby shower games?

I hate showers - baby or bridal. I avoid them like the plague.

Those pictures are funny! I love baby showers. I don't know that I have a favorite game though, I just like to see the mommy to be getting spoiled a bit before the little one arrives. :)

I just watched Rio for the first time and it's super cute.

I love baby and bridal showers, they can be so fun. I've been to a few boring ones, but it's all about the people invited, in my opinion. I always try to liven them up, when they get dull.

I think the baby candypoop diaper game is hilarious!

I always love going to wedding and baby showers! It seems like the older I get, the more I'm invited to go by my own friends and I must say I'm feeling quite old because of that lately! LOL

Looks like you guys had a fun time :) Those shower games look REALLY funny!
