when the girls get together.

I attended my very first baby shower in Lahore last June with Hussy as her guest. And my second one was mine own.Β  All I can say is all that ostrogen in one room, God help us for surviving it without serious repercussions. Jokes aside, it was one of the most fun all-female times I have spent in a long long while. Did it help drive the fact home that I am looking at motherhood practically in the eye? Not at all. Did I feel even slightly initiated into the Motherhood? Nope, not yet. It was a wonderful “pretend” evening with cute little baby gifts, of fun games, and happy songs – and not even my scarily swollen feet could drive home the very poignant fact that week 32 has arrived, in effect starting what is popularly known as thr final countdown.
