I just had to share this. So, I was hanging at a friends house with another friend of ours. Let's call them, Beth and Sarah.
We were discussing my shower this weekend and Beth, who got pregnant at 18, starts talking about when she has her next baby down the road and having a baby shower because she got rid of everything after her son. I asked her why she got rid of it when she planned on having more down the road. She then explained how she will need new stuff because her son will be at least 7 when she has another baby and if it's a girl, she can't use her old boy items.
I then went on to say, "you know most people only get a shower for their first baby. You should have kept all that stuff just in case. A shower is generally given to you to celebrate you becoming a new mom. Not to celebrate every new baby."
She then has a huge disagreement with me and looks over at Sarah and says,"if someone has a baby 7 years apart don't you think they should get another shower?" and Sarah's reply was,"Well typically you get another shower if there is an age gap or if you're now having the opposite sex."
Beth then looks at me and says,"see told you!"
I am in complete shock and just say,"if anything is given its usually a sprinkle where there is no big ticket items included" and Beth says,"well the least id want is a diaper shower..."
What the heck has the world come to. Why are people not taught proper ettiquite. And when I try to give them a little history, I'm made out to be the fool who knows nothing!
