Baby Shower Advice From an Imperfect Mama

Dear E,


When I heard that you and your gorgeous husband were expecting your first baby, I wanted to shout for joy. When I heard your sister-in-law was handling the shower, I was a little less excited.

4. Countless newborn cutesie outfits: Your baby will grow out of these in about five minutes.
