So, you're at a baby shower, cooing over baby items and discussing the baby on the way. How hard is it to avoid saying the word "baby"? Very hard -- even more difficult than you might think! So, make it a game.

This is often played by giving a clothespin to each guest. Guests clip the clothespins to their sleeves or the hems of their shirts, or on strings of ribbon or yarn around their necks.

Each time someone blunders and says "baby," the person who catches the slip-up gets to take the offender's clothespin and keep it.

The person who has amassed the most pins at the end of the shower wins.
