Baby Quiz

I co-hosted (hostessed?) a baby shower today.  I woke up this morning and immediately went into panic mode.  It was 6:30 a.m., the shower was supposed to start at 9:30, and I hadn’t even baked the cake let alone decorated it!

Then I remembered, I wasn’t responsible for the cake this time.  Ahhhhhhh . . .

I was the game person this time.

Ha HA!  Revenge of the nerds, baby.

I have sniffed more than my share of diapers smeared with melted candy bars and putrid colored baby food this past year.  The mother already had the baby, so no humiliating over-guessing her girth with the toilet paper.  Nope.  Powder your hair gray and then dye it blue, because we’re doing word games!

How many can you get right?  (and no cheating with your internet access!)

Now I must go NaNo for about 1600 words.  My heart really isn’t in it this year.  Maybe that’s because my heart is here:


And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.
