We were invited to the couples baby shower of the son of a friend of ours and I only had 5 minutes to whip out something before flying out the door to the party…
Having a baby is such an amazing, wonder-full experience and being a parent is such an important and complex job… Along with those precious tiny fingers & toes, adorable gurgling noises, and the sweet, snuggly smell of a newborn comes sleepless nights, countless messy diapers, and a lot of work for the next 18 years, preparing that little bundle to venture out some day into the big world on their own.
I can’t help but want to interject a little humor when congratulating new parents… because I know what lies ahead… And, they’re gonna need it. ;)
Note: A Dymo Label Maker was used to create the sentiment. I took this shot with my iPhone before dashing out the door, so I wasn’t able to pick up the sparkly shimmer on the stars and baby bundle, courtesy of my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen. :)
