Hello! I'm not sure if I have introduced myself here or not... But if not, hello! I'm a FTM and super excited! I'm only 13.5 weeks and this is a part of my frustration.
I got an email from my mom asking "so do I throw you a shower? It could be a shower by mail where people send you gifts, but only AFTER you register at Babies R Us and Target..." Ummm... Wait, what? I realize that I live in Virginia, my parents live in Mississippi, and have other family in Missouri, Oregon, and California... And I am honored that she is thinking of a shower for me, but come on. Shower by mail?
I politely declined. I'm not sure where she even got the idea?
And, obviously she has been checking out the registries to know that I hadn't registered. I'm only 13.5 weeks. I know she is excited, but this isn't her first grand kid. This is 4.
Sorry. Thanks for letting me vent. I'm just dumbfounded.
