Well it’s not really a traditional baby shower because the baby’s already here. It’ll be more of a family gathering to meet her. No “smell the chocolate in the diaper” or B-I-N-G-O games, sorry! But pizza π (get it, “pie”??) and beer will probably be served.
The mom (my sister) is a technology whiz and an incredibly creative person. She also has an amazing robot collection. Combine everything together and I thought she’d appreciate a semi-nerdy, minimal yet clever theme: “Hello, World!”
I’ve designed this invite for the party:
When you’re learning to code, “Hello, World” programs are used to teach the basics of syntax and function. I briefly learned Java in college. Kind of like how you took Spanish in high school, but maybe now only remember phrases like “Me llamo ________.” or “¿Dónde está el bano?”. My inner nerd is hoping to someday take more computer science classes; I’m not sure whether or not they’d ever come in handy.
I know there’s not a high demand for this type of themed invite, but I’m sharing it just in case it hits some other mathy/nerdy/fresh mommy-to-be.
