DH & I decided are going to wait & be surprised whether we were blessed with a boy or girl. Thus far, we received much support, but a few people have been MORE THAN VOCAL... and they aren't even MY relatives.
Shower was at a restaurant, and here's the recap...
1 guest at my shower (DH's relative) made a deal about the centerpiece because the one on "her" table was BLUE NOT PINK. Since, she decided I was having a girl & didn't want any blue or boy items at the table, she went to switch with another one in the room... and of course in the process, broke not one, but 2 center pieces. WTF!!!
The other gal, a friend, corrects people, saying, "No, she's having a girl." When I get to opening gifts, she comments the same way. "Oh well, you'll have to return that, it looks like it's for a boy." I get to her gift and guess what... PINK! And a mount of pink it was; then said, "I didn't give you the receipts because I'm sure you are having a girl." And she then remarked, that if I have a boy, we'll it's okay because the baby won't know he's in pink clothes. --- Um pretty sure as it's MY child, DH & I GET TO MAKE THAT CALL!!!!
I just find both of these so rude and tactless, I can't fathom how incredibly inappropriate the behavior was... never mind the women in their 40s!
It was supposed to be an enjoyable & joyous day, and these two just managed to make people feel awkward. At one point, I pondered asking the each to leave! And now I wish I had!!!!
Any thoughts on how to deal with them the next time I see them?
