In the past month I’ve been invited to three baby showers in my ward for mothers who have new babies but also have several older children. Can you all shed some light on the rules of baby showers? I generally thought you had a shower for the first child and possibly the first child of a different sex – but when did the RS start giving showers to mother’s with multiple children of the same sex?? When I was pregnant, I had a baby shower for my first, but no one bothered with me once 2 and 3 arrived – especially #3 – once people found out he had a “genetic defect” they avoided me like the plague and wouldn’t even talk about my pregnancy, let alone give me or him gifts. Like his defective heart was somehow contagious. Except Heather – she sent me this luscious pink robe that I still wear! (Or did you send that to me when I had my miscarriage? Regardless, I still LOVE it!)
I can understand if a close group of friends wanted to give an intimate party for the expectant mother – but these showers are for the WHOLE Relief Society via Evite! Really?
Maybe I’m bitter because I didn’t get a baby shower for number 2 & 3.
