Much to Ellen's dismay.
If you've been to many baby showers, you've probably seen these clever centerpieces made of diapers that the mom can use later. The first I heard of them was the time I was helping out with a shower several years ago and my friend was telling me excitedly about the "diaper cake" she was making for the event. The more she tried to explain, the more confused I became, and the more wrong it sounded. "Well, you roll up diapers, and you put ribbons on it . . ." Once I got the key piece of information that we were not talking about something you eat, everything finally fell into place.
