Baby Pool

So after having a baby gender reveal party, sharing my various pregnancy stories, and other pregnancy preparations, we are finally in the home stretch. I am due on June 22nd, so I thought it would be fun to have a baby pool!

A baby pool is where you guess the date and time that this baby is going to be born. The person that is the closest, wins a prize, and I have a good one.

Edible Arrangements

This is an Edible Arrangement. If you have never had one before, you will love it. Fresh and yummy fruit, cut in these super fun shapes, that look like a flower bouquet. I’ve been a fan of Edible Arrangements for awhile now, but I especially love it for a new Mom/welcome baby home gift. (These are especially cute!) While flowers are great, they just wilt after a couple of days and dragging all the flowers home from the hospital is a pain. But having a fruit bouquet is unique and practical. Let’s face it, in those early days of a newborn, there is not much time to eat. So this is a thoughtful and sensible gift since the new parents can have something to eat in those wee hours in the morning.

Don’t know any new Moms or Dads? Then send it to a recent graduate, a friend who is going through a tough time, or a family member celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Heck, send it to yourself, but the person you send this to, will think you rock.

So leave your guess and the person who is the closest to the date and time of this newest “baby chronicle” will win the Delicious Fruit Design bouquet above! If you want to send a larger arrangement or include a balloon or chocolates, you can apply the value to something greater.

Good luck! And thanks for taking the time to participate! To see who won with the closest guess, check out my post here.

(Please note that if you win the Edible Arrangement prize, either you or the person you send this too, needs to live or work in Massachusetts or Southern New Hampshire because these are the locations that are participating in this particular giveaway. However, there are hundreds of Edible Arrangment locations around the country at anytime ready to send an Edible Arrangement! )

  1. […] However, in the first weeks of a newborn being in a house, things are crazy. Late nights, long days and desperation for food that you don’t have to make yourself. These are the reasons that I love Edible Arrangements for a new Mom/new baby gift as I wrote about in my post here. […]

  2. […] am expecting the exact opposite with this baby who is due any day now. So I have short-sleeve outfits, and I’m looking forward to starting my marathon training […]
