That's over the top! Never heard of such a thing.

Are you expected to bring a gift?

WHAT???? That's crazy!!!

That's like having an engagement party! It sounds like another reason to hit people up for presents!!!

For what its worth...I also think those CO-ED showers are stupid!!! Many of the ladies there don't want to be there...what makes the hostesses think MEN want to come too????

Sheesh!!!

I know, right? I laughed, too!

The whole idea is funny to me.

I agree with the poster who said they liked it when people had one shower, period. No matter how many kids they had. This definitely feels like a weird excuse to get presents, or just plain weird.

I'm trying be generous and think that its just a unusual theme for a get-together, but it seems pretty self absorbed to me too and presumptuous to think that everybody else cares. But then,

Thank you all - that was just what I was thinking. I actually turned down the invite and said I had other plans.
