♥RAISE MY BABY Swap♥ The Parade!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Welcome to the Raise My Baby Swap 2010

Yes, this is the 3rd year and we are all looking forward to new adoptees.
Babies are anticipating new mamas. Whether they'll get to their new homes by carriages or storks, let's hope their journeys are made comfortable.

Please be fair: send a baby that shows potential growth and a chance for survival, hence not a mere seedling.
NO adult plant please. It's okay to send a companion plant, so the baby won't be alone.
Again, I stress, no cacti, venus fly traps nor any artificial plants!

Make sure your baby's hydrated during the journey.
I recommend strongly you use prority mail and if you can, delivery confirmation, as well.
So no mamas can accuse you of sabotage if the baby didn't get to the right address ;)

Please post picture of your baby and let us know how she/he is doing. If you have any valuable tips on how to raise a perfect baby, please share.

Naming the baby will be the new mama's privelige.

Have FUN.. let the baby parade begin!! ^_^

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Will do, Jayebird. I'm still squealing over who's going to raise my baby!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Cochon, cochon... cochon.. you woke up the rats in that picture!!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Maid M.. Charleen... you only name the babies you receive!

Jax, please don't sedate the baby when sending it along.

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

I am with you--only name what is mine but do we put our name on the one we sent to some one else?

My lip hurting is causing my brain not to function at full capacity. ;-)

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Alright. Can we name it after the sender?? Then we take baby pictures?

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Maid M.. I am feeling your pain!
Rimau just scratched me!! First time in 9 years! Must be the moon.

Yes, let the other mama know who's sending her the baby.

( Kris) Smiths, AL(Zone 8a)

Jaye you have D: Mail.

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Got it Kris.

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Charleen, you can name the baby you receive anything you want.
Just don't name the baby you're sending away.

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Oh Jaye, I am so sorry. Funny thing is my arm which I throw up to protect my face from getting scratched or bitten is much worse but I guess the lip area is so sensitive that it hurts more. Hummm , think it could be the moon? I have this horrible feeling what we were told when we adopted her 9 years ago might be coming into play now. She was hurt by her previous owners and they tried to poison her. The vet where we adopted her did tell Ross that they couldn't say she didn't have "brain damage" that might show up as she aged. I am beginning to think this might be the situation--oh how I hope not but will find out. Keep your scratch clean!!!

Glenview, IL

Hi everyone...
yippeee, Jaye, Thank you for my Buddie!
I am excited!

You know, i have so much fun in this Swap.

I still have my first baby Lulu from the first Swap. She's a Hibiscus.
And Angel is also still doing well. My very first Brug, Angel trumpet(i think.)

I would like an outside plant, please.

P.S. Quote from Jaye... "So no one will be able to sway the judge by dmails.. cmails.. emails.. or telephone calls!!"
Bashfully batting my eyes, your not referring to me? Are you?? LOLOL,

Have fun everyone!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Do what's best for you Maid M. And for sure, you won't want your grandbabies to be attacked, neither. Maybe the vet can do something.

Good thing about the scratch.. I don't have to prick my finger for tonight's blood sugar test!

( Kris) Smiths, AL(Zone 8a)

Marion,, seems like you need a cat like my Patches,, he is a total limp rag for 23 hours a day the other hour he is eating and runnng a marathon though the house. He just wears me out in that one lonnnng hour...

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Judy, would our sweet Jaye accuse you, the most laid back, sweet little lady you are, of trying to persuade a judge? That is just unbelievable to think any, repeat, any of this group would ever attempt to do that.

BTW Jaye, now what did you say the judge's favorite colors were? LOL

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Judy.... you'll never be able to sway the judge.. unless you throw in a Venice vacation!!!!

Hey Maid M.. I can safely say she loves P!!! So you know it's not me!!|
Nice try....

(jax) Dundalk, MD(Zone 7a)

.....kin anyone do sumpthin fer the lady in labor????

it be a long ride ta new mommie house....and now i cant sedate the lil brat????

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

OH! will it be okay to make something "P" if you have to assemble it? Would want to upset our hostess in an attempt to ah, ah please the judge. LOL

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Jax, tell her to just "cross her legs"

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Guess I'll close my eyes for the judge, Maid M!!

OMG!!! Isn't that advice more suitable for errant mothers?? ROF!!
Cross her legs, indeed!!!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Kris, I have 3 that's just like your cat!! Languidly happy after meals!!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Jax.. NO means NO!!

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Well Jaye, they do offer some sedatives when you are in labor so Jax was only trying to help. LOL I was told to cross my legs--but of course, Ross was afraid I was going to deliver in his new car!!!!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Ahhhh.. thanks for clearing that up Maid M. Childless here, so what do I know about birthing!
No wonder I kill so many babies!
But Jax' idea of a sedative comes with an AA booklet!!

Glenview, IL

Oh my, I would never, wink, ever try and purrsway the judge!
...Who'd you say it was, now?

heheh, once I had a secret pal answer her phone singing I'm not telling.

Ohh, hahah, i mean, i know of this person...

Cross my legs, Maid M? It's too late for that, new car or not! And I'm not telling if I've had a boy or a girl. OMG could it be twins?

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Enjoy your vacation, Kris. Tickle your toes in the sand for me :)

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Happy Birthday, Kris, while you're on vacation!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Good morning!!
Thought I saw an usual bird with a cigar in its' mouth flying overhead!!
Tish... I hope the baby doesn't pick up its bad habit!

Mamas, hope you all got your name. If not.. dmail me.
Thanks ladies for responding to the dmails.

Have a wonderful, relaxing vacation, Kris and Ralph.

Well Susan, why don't you just wish for octoplets!!!

Alright mamas.. the RED, WHITE and BLUE Swap is taking names!! Yep... July is almost here. This will be the 3rd year in showing how much DGers love this great country!

(Marion) Havana, FL(Zone 8b)

Will be very busy today putting the finishing touches on the nursery. Hummm guess yellow or green will be the best colors as I am not sure of the sex yet.

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Will you have draperies too, Maid M?
Oooo... how about a bug lined crib?
