I don't mind telling you that when the men found out that they had (oh, sorry, typo) GOT to come to the party, they were thrilled. Not only was it their first baby shower but also their first tea party.
The winner, by I believe 3 seconds was my own wonderful husband. Now, he is the only one that had a cheerleader at his side and even though in the past I've thought that cheerleaders were more for the fans than the team, I will admit that this particular cheerleader helped encourage her Daddy to a win.
The second game allowed the men to call upon their olfactory functions as well as their abundant knowledge of candy bars. Yes, it was the "Guess What's in the Diaper" game. No amount of embarrassment stopped these champions, they stuck their noses right into those disposable delights to guess what kind of melted and mushed up candy bar made the mess they found.
Yes, you guessed it, my own amazing husband!!!! Yay Babe! The actual winner was me because he gave me his prize of Starbucks gift cards. Now, in all my excitement for my husband's win I did blurt out something to the effect of how he was the best husband. I truly do believe that, for me. However, the other men there are definitely the best husbands for their wives, that's why God paired us all the way He did. Anyway, I did feel a bit bad about saying that, so here is my public apology, you are all great. Kim is just better. JUST KIDDING. I am fully aware that Kim is the only husband that is currently practicing all of these skills, the rest of the Daddy's there have older kids than we do and therefore were at a slight disadvantage when it came to those particular Daddy Olympics. I will say that all the men showed great sportsmanship and I believe that they raised the bar for real men. No longer will the saying be, "Real men eat quiche." It will now have the added appendage of "and go to tea parties."
