The Newlymoms

Oh, not that… not yet.  But here’s a little game we played at our baby party (it’s hard to call a co-ed gathering at a bar a “shower”), in addition to Heritage Jeopardy and Price is Right.  We called it the Newlymoms and sat on stools with our answer cards as our friend channeled the spirit of the great Bob Eubanks.
