I don't know what's up with Blogger lately. I sign on and all my blog lists go crazy. I've tried everything...re-starting my computer, internet...I got nothing. So there. I hope tomorrow is a better day for blogger.
As I was blog-surfing today, I ran across a blog that talked about second-child baby showers. Now she took the side of saying that it was rude. So it got me thinking...
What do you think about second/third/fourth baby showers?
Now I'm all for any kind of get-together where there's food and friends. Especially sweet ones. (That goes for both food and friends.) I don't think it's rude to have another baby shower, or be the spotlight if it's your second child. This lady was saying that it was rude to ask for gifts for the second child.
I have always been a fan of baby showers. It gets us ladies time to talk/brag about our kids and labors. It's kinda like fish/hunting stories with men. They get better with time. I don't think baby showers need to be centered around gifts, whether it's the first or seventh kid. It's about celebrating with Mom that she's going to go into labor soon! LOL No not really, but kinda.
I have always thought that you could have two baby showers...one for a boy and one for a girl. If you had all boys, tough luck...and vice versa. For those that don't find out what you are having, better ask for yellow and green stuff!
I think that second-child showers are actually better cuz you get the cool stuff. You've already done it once so you don't have to hear the horrible stories about no-sleeping-through-the-night until the kid is 13. Or how labor can last 12 years. You know the stuff we all tell first-time mom's to freak them out! Plus people already know that you have the car seat and stroller and crib...so you get blankets and clothes and cool stuff! Like (hint for my next child) those Nursing Hide-a things that Peas & Carrots sells! ------> go check them out over there. I want one bad...just gotta get prego first!
So comment away on your thoughts for baby showers!
