Hi everyone, sincere apologies if this thread was already started. I looked through several pages and didn't see anything relevant. I just need to vent!
My Mom kindly offered to host my shower. I'm older, 31, and my husband and I have stable jobs so I feel weird asking for gifts. I told her I wanted to do something low key, just a BBQ with family.
While I was at my cousins baby shower last week, my Mom said the nastiest things about my registry to almost everyone who is invited to my shower. I'm really hurt because I put a ton of time into researching registry items and I'm really proud of it. I have 100+ items with a wide range of prices. My SIL was nice enough to give us lots of hand-me-downs so I removed any dups. My Mom said she refuses to purchase something on the registry because she's the grandma and shouldn't have to. Sure, I can stomach that, but after ripping on my items only a few shower guests are interested in my registry. I'm at a loss and don't know what do to or say to get this back on track. I really don't want to purchase everything on there!
