For Antigone

5 Dec

I’m not sure where to begin. Your blog is one of the ones I found while looking for support last year after we lost Aodin. It turns out I found more than support when I started reading and commenting on your blog. I found someone whose writing I enjoyed, and someone who to this day continues to impress me with her strength and intelligence. Whether you think so or not, something tells me you won’t be Lost for long.

I am so thankful to be your friend, in blogland and in real life. I know you’re already a fabulous mother, and little Perseus is going to be so proud. I can’t wait to meet him. I know this isn’t a real shower, but I hope you enjoy it all the same. I promise you real dessert when we get together next.

I totally didn’t do this alone. I had LOTS of help from Awful but Functioning! Check out her blog for her awesome party game! This was also totally Missing One’s idea, so she should get lots of credit! 🙂

Others who are coming to your Virtual Shower:
Twice Mice
Beautiful Mess
Amelia Sprout
Get Pregnant
Me and Sis
Batty Nurse
Circles Become Me
Amazing Instant
Rossiter Chronicles
Which Box
Mrs. Maynard
Upturned Barbie

Here, have some cake:

    What a great idea. I ate some cake for your shower today, Antigone.

    I wouldn’t miss your shower Anitigone! I’m celebrating with you, and I’ll be sure to eat my share of cake today!

    Oooooh….virtual party games!!! I can’t wait!

    And Antigone, you know I *never* give hugs but in this case, I’ll make an exception.

    Oh, Antigone. I’m so glad to have the occasion to celebrate with you.

    That was the sweet. Let me try for some snark.

    Nah, can’t find any snark. I find it inspirational how you persevered in spite of all you’ve been through in the short time I’ve “known” you.

    Best wishes and smooth sailing in the coming weeks. And months an years.

    And thank GAWD I don’t have to do that awful toilet paper game.

    I’ll be thinking of you all at noon today!

    My first shower in a long time and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

    I am celebrating your exciting new life with your son! I hear the cake is delicious!

    Happy Shower Day! Wow, that didn’t sound good, did it? 😉 Congratulations and I am so happy for you and your soon to arrive baby.
    I am so glad I found your blog and hope that I have been able to provide some support for you over the past few months.

    Wow, I somehow missed the noon part. My bad. See? I don’t even READ invitations.

    Thanks for hosting, Yummy and Missing! y’all are awesome.

    Cake is delish.

    OOh! Wish I could be there, but I have to teach. 😦 My heart will be with you along with the books “A Snowy Day” and “Leo the Late Bloomer” I’ll stop by later.

    Sending all my love, Antigone. Please have a piece of cake for me!

    Happy baby shower Antigone! I’m eating cake and drinking in your honour as we speak.

    Congrats Antigone! It has been so heart breaking to “watch” what you have gone through and yet so awe inspiring, watching you rise above. Perseus is so blessed because he has the strongest mommy on the planet. You are going to be the best mom ever!


  15. Calliope December 5, 2008 at 11:43 am #

    yay! I love virtual showers. Sending lots of warmth & love.

    Congrats Antigone! What a lovely shower, and the cake is delicious. Yum. All the best!!

  17. Michelle December 5, 2008 at 12:10 pm #

    Congrats and Happy Baby Shower! The cake is great.

  18. Becky December 5, 2008 at 12:33 pm #

    I’m here too! Happy baby shower, Antigone! Hope you don’t mind that I’m bogarting the cake. Sorry about that.

  19. janis December 5, 2008 at 12:38 pm #

    What an awesome idea!
    Best wishes to you, Antigone!

    And since no one has taken that cake-topper of a monkey, I’m going for it.

    I wish I had a glass of champagne to raise to you, but it’s early here on the West Coast, so I’m raising some antioxidant-rich green tea to you and Perseus!

  21. Amelie December 5, 2008 at 12:57 pm #

    Happy baby shower! Mmmh, cake.

  22. Ms. Beth December 5, 2008 at 12:57 pm #

    Happy to join the celebration!! 🙂

    Congratulations Antigone! I’ve never commented before but I’ve been following your blog for months now and I’m so happy for you and Perseus. I’m excited to be at your virtual shower – this is such a great community. Enjoy 🙂

    Can’t talk, eating.
    Happy shower day!
    Congratulations, you’re a fabulous Mom to a wonderful boy. (I don’t have to see him to know that.

  39. Melissia December 5, 2008 at 8:14 pm #

    Sorry I am so late to the party! See what happens if you take a nap? You are going to be just the best mom there is. And that offer for the sampler is a standing one! So when you find a pattern you like, or when things settle down just let me know.

  40. Alex December 5, 2008 at 9:51 pm #

    Oh dear — I’m late … but the cake still looks wonderful!

  41. Kristin December 5, 2008 at 9:55 pm #

    What a fabulous cake! Happy Shower Day Antigone.

  42. Karin December 7, 2008 at 7:17 pm #

    Happy Shower day! The cake is sensational!

  43. scarredbellybutton December 8, 2008 at 2:51 am #

    (Belatedly) happy baby shower Antigone!

  44. Ms.Sassypants December 8, 2008 at 4:41 pm #

    I’m so bummed I missed it! I followed the link from your comment on Antigone’s blog about being able to send packages to you. If you would be so kind to let me ship the package to you, for Antigone, I’d appreciate it.

    Thank you!
