Okay, so the question about baby showers in the Monday Check-in thread got me thinking...
What do you guys personally think about baby showers for women who already have a boatload of kids (me)? My sister-in-law insists on throwing me a baby shower, even if it's just a "sprinkle" or a diaper shower, etc... I feel SO off about the whole thing! I don't want to make her feel bad, but after as many kids as I've had (this is baby #5), I just feel like it's over the top. And I'm really kinda embarrassed to have her ask people to come.
And what's odd is that I wouldn't give it a second thought if it were a friend having baby #5...
It's not like we have ANYTHING for a little boy at all. Our last boy was born 12 1/2 years ago, and he was followed by 3 girls. I gave up hope of having another boy ever, so all of his stuff is long gone. BUT I know what I need... exactly what I need and what I don't, and we have the money to buy it all, so I feel like a shower would just be an excuse to get together and eat cake Not a bad excuse, I guess
So what do you guys think? Tacky or okay?
