It's A Baby Shower For Kori's Daughter! (Let's Go Shopping!)
When I first started blogging I kept seeing, in comments, the moniker, See Kori Rant.
Mmmmm....I thought. Who is this Kori who rants?
And so I started reading Ms. Kori's blog and oh honey, what a blog. Kori is a no-holds-barred, tell-it-like-it-is mama/woman/blogger who has been through some STUFF! Can I get an amen on that?
And yet, every time something happens in her life that threatens to push her down, she somehow gathers the strength and the courage to rise again and face whatever needs facing. When I think of Kori, I think of a Mama Lion because I know she would do whatever it took to protect and raise her young'uns. And she does.
I also think of a strong tree which knows enough to bend in a high wind, who never gives up although she sometimes despairs, who doesn't even KNOW her own strength.
When Kori told us some months ago that her seventeen year old daughter was, ahem, pregnant, we of the blog community rushed to her with our virtual support because
(a) We have come to love Kori, and those of us who have been reading her for awhile know that Hannah is as brave as her mother,
(b) Most of us, ahem, know quite well we could have been pregnant at seventeen.
Well, speaking for myself.
So today I want to throw a virtual shower for Beautiful Hannah because her sweet daughter, Aubry is due to arrive around September 10th and it's one thing for us to rush to give our support with words and it's another to support this young mama-to-be-really-soon with a small giftie of some sort.
It's so easy these days, of course, with online gift registries.
Hannah is registered at
The Target Baby Gift Registry
The JC Penney Baby Gift Registry and
The Walmart Baby Gift Registry
Just type in her name, which is Hannah Dunn and go shop. It's fun! I did it!
And let's show sweet Hannah and sweet Aubry that blogging is about more than words.
And that words mean something.
And let me add that unfortunately there is not a gift registry for grandmothers. If it did, it would include a bottle of Ativan and two cameras (one for back-up emergencies).
But there isn't.
So let me just say that Kori doesn't really need any gifts right now because she's about to get the greatest gift of her life. And I say that from experience.
All right. Go shop!
And Hannah- we send you love above all else and as you go through this new and incredible journey, remember you are in no way alone.
And most importantly- you're about to find out what real love is and welcome to the club of mama's. Best club in the world.
