Haiku Friday: It's a baby shower! edition


This week, I'm combining Haiku Friday with Swampy's virtual baby shower for Karmyn, whose baby boy is due in just two weeks, give or take whatever.

Karmyn's unborn child
gives me vicarious thrills
but I'm glad it's HERS!

Heee! No, I do NOT have aching ovaries at the thought of babies anymore. Although I wouldn't mind grandchildren (Drummer? Are you listening? Marry that girl already!)

But I digress. This is Karmyn's party, so I can't cry if I want to.

Anyway, everyone always gives things for the baby at showers. But I remember what it felt like when baby no. 3 (and ... ahem ... no. 4) arrived. So here are the things I would have liked and therefore give to Karmyn:

Someone to do the cleaning:



Someone to do the cooking:



A jacuzzi with a view when you need an escape from the crazies:



And, of course, something to identify the baby for what he truly is:



Check out Swampy's place for more shower partygoers.

And for more traditional (?) Haiku Friday stuff, see her and her.

lovely haiku - there were many days i would have loved it if someone had thought to send me a wet nurse...

karisma said...

Thats it! I am so moving in with Karmyn! That spa sure beats mine! WOW and I absolutely love that little suit! Where did you find it?

jennifer said...

Maybe that's what I need! Adopted grandchildren...only new babies of course, though.

I'm such a dope. Until I read this..I forgot the shower was today. I had to go and redo my haikus. MORON!

Wonderful Loving gifts!
I don't want any more and not ready for gran kids, but I love them. My 13 year old told me yesterday that I either needed to have another baby or adopt one. You should have seen the shock on my face! My baby is 10 & I'm in menopause! I still have on the shock face!! I ask him why? and he said because sissy wasn't cute and cuddly anymore. LOL!

How come they never have baby showers for the Dad?

swampy said...

OK, let's all jump in that jacuzzi...well, Karmyn will just have to sit on the side and enjoy the sunset.
Love the haiku! You're too talented for your own good.
Thanks for coming to the shower and bringing all the gifts. How in the world did you wrap that jacuzzi?

Toni said...

I think your gifts are perfect and wish someone had given them to me!

nikki said...

Oh my gosh, I freaking ADORE that onesie!! I too, also need a maid.

Kaytabug said...

I would LOVE a maid. That onesie is too cute and absolutely hilarious!

Jenni said...

Now, if you can figure out how to give a new mom and extra 10 hours of sleep a day, you'll be on to something!

Karmyn R said...

Janet - that is the BEST onesie I have ever seen. Too true!!

and I'll take that jacuzzi with or without the view. aaaaaaaaah.

Thanks for coming today!!!

Pamela said...

three of us so far have gifted her with maid service and spa

I think it just shows how much we all remember about having a new baby.

Blog Fodder -- ho ho ho -- we may just be getting closer to a nickname for this little fellow

Great heartfelt haiku! Nice choice of virtual baby shower gifts for the mommy-to-be also.

Very cute haiku! Love that you combined the two!

Sorry about word verification. I know it's a pain but if not for it, I get all the asshat's comments.
