Baby Showers

Holy Crud, A DD of a DD post?

So OP posted about wanting to throw her own shower.  Compared throwing her own shower to having "Test Tube Babies".  DD'd post.  

Posted a NEW post about having DD'd other post.  Continued to be a major twit in second post, digging hole deeper and deeper.   DD'd second post.  

Wow, that's a new record.

He's the single greatest thing I've done in my life and reminds me daily of how fun (and funny) life can be.  He's turned out pretty swell for having such a heartless and evil mother.

  • Oh goodness.  Yea she is still just TTC but was asking if it really was that bad for her to throw her own shower because she wants things to be perfect and she didn't want to be disappointed.  Then she made the "test tube" comment and went on and on about how it wasn't the gifts but to celebrate the baby.  Normal comments follow and she realizes a sip n see would be perfect for her (after saying that she doesn't have many girl friends to throw a shower for her and she lives far from family).  
  • Must have been in the OP which I would have seen had she not DD'd it.

  • I know, I'm horrible, but it's attitudes like this in the world that just need to end. Just stop TTC and don't pass the obnoxiousness to the next generation,  

    I may be a big ol B sometimes… but...

  • Whoa, I must have missed the part where she wasn't even pregnant yet.  And you're already planning your own baby shower?! That's a special kind of crazy.

  • oh for the love of God. Seriously? edit: I think the internet is not the place for that OP. If you can't handle the flaming in one post, then what makes you think you can handle it in another. 

    Also, the test tube baby comment was heinous. Logic is clearly not her strong suit.

    Yep, she was just TTC, and she said she wanted to plan her own shower because she was afraid that if someone else planned the shower she would walk into the shower and burst into tears if it wasn't exactly how she wanted it.  And then was accusing our mothers of not raising us right because we were telling her you can't throw your own shower.  I wanted to rip my arm off and throw it at her.

  • I'm not really surprised! That whole thing was ridiculous but especially the comment in the OP where she said she would burst into tears if it wasn't perfect. When did showers become like weddings?!

    When people become such egomaniacs to think that everything they do in their life needs to thrust them into the permanent center of the world for all of their friends and family.   If you're crying over imperfections in parties (yes, even in weddings), your sense of priorities need re-adjusted.

    Call me crazy, but I don't think it's okay to burst into tears over your every little detail of your wedding being perfect either.

  • What a bizarre thing to even think about when you're not even pregnant yet. When I was TTC, there was certainly a lot on my mind, but baby shower planning was way off my radar!

    This. Why not throw a BD party on the first day you're expected to ovulate? Don't you want everything to be perfect??? Hahahaha
  • I missed all of this, but I often wonder how often the people who are worried about their own showers have offered to throw a 'perfect' one for their friends? Don't you need to give one to expect to receive one?

    I am soooo with you on this. To me, Wedding >>>>>> Shower (of any kind), and I still don't think it's worth it to get into a tizzy over your wedding. So long as the bride, groom, minister, and two witnesses show up to sign the license (and nobody gets obnoxiously drunk or commits a felony), all should be considered perfect. Heck, at my brother's wedding, the minister was an hour late. The show went on, with one of my brother's friend stepping in as "officiant" for show. When the minister showed up in the middle of the reception (he thought the wedding was at 5, when it was actually at 4), they pulled the wedding party and immediately family out onto the balcony to do the official ceremony. My SIL tells the story with a laugh in her voice, and they're just as married now as they would be if the minister had been on time.
