Quoting Juliette:" My mother in law is throwing me a shower that's just what they do here. This is my fourth and my oldest ... [snip!] ... clothes to last till we can get our stuff. Meh. Its nobody's business really. If people don't want to go they don't have too."
Exactly! A lot of places are different..but it's out tradition where I'm from that each pregnancy has a shower because each pregnancy is different. We make the baby showers about the baby it's self and prepare for the baby entering the family/world.I do not expect much either and quite honestly don't care.It's always nice...but I'd be happy just to have friends and family preparing and celebrating her new coming. I usually do have raffles like if you bring a pack of diapers you get entered in the raffle and I normally have cute little prizes from bath and body works and stuff to treat people
It's normally so fun and I personally think every pregnancy deserves one bc its rough! But if people don't believe in it or like the idea,that's their decision,So I won't knock it! I don't understand why people are getting upset with me because of something my family and friends have always done?
