This is my third pregnancy, in 3 years. I had two showers with my first, declined any with my second. I started a new job in a school last year, and a coworker is so excited for me and has offered to throw a shower. I told her that it was a really nice gesture, but that I don't need a thing.
She does keep offering, and I assumed she meant that maybe we would do like just a cake or something during the school day. This would work out fairly poorly, since not everyone gets breaks to eat at the same time, or at all. I can't imagine anyone wanting to stay after school either.
But, the coworker had said that we could do something at her house. I feel like this would also go poorly, since really I am only at this school a couple days a week and just started this job, so I don't have tons of friends just hoping to spend their Saturday giving me gifts. Also, I live 45 minutes away, and have 2 small children.
So, my dilemma is that I don't want any shower, but the coworker really wants to organize something. Any suggestions? Also, baby is due right at the end of the school year, so any sort of meet the baby type party would be poor timing, since over the summer would be an unpopular time. I have 2 girls, and we are not finding out the sex before birth. Thanks for any ideas!
