I'm going to quickly whine and you ladies can tell me if I need to get over myself. So my Aunt offered to throw me a family baby shower back in June with about 12-15 of our female relatives. She never asked about a date and I didn't want to be rude and bring it up so my mom told me just to wait and it would all get figured out. Well my mom talked to my aunt yesterday and basically she went on and on about how busy she is planning this 90th birthday for a relative on her husbands side and never mentioned the baby shower so my mom said to assume it is not happening. I am bummed out because I was looking forward to seeing the family on both sides before baby arrives. Also it's a bit awkward because I am worried many of my family members that we don't talk to all the time will just think they were snubbed and not invited to a shower, but I can't exactly call them and say "hey, I'm not having a shower because no one is hosting, sorry!"
Anyways I am a little hurt by my moms indifference and a little concerned about the situation but I guess it is best just to let it go. My sister (with help from my mom) is throwing me a wonderful shower September 7th with about 25 of my girl friends. Her house is small though and she had asked that we do a friends shower separate from family, which I was and am totally fine it. Luckily it means I still get to celebrate the excitement with people I love, just hoping I don't hurt any family members feelings!
