Baby Showers

Hilarious Baby Shower Submission From StfuParents

I found this to be hilarious, so I thought I'd share.

And we think we've seen some baby shower faux pas...

  • That is too funny. I couldn't even read it all, but I'm sure I got farther than I would have if I were one of the people this was directed to. She's be getting about 20 pink newborn onesies from me.

    But what angers me the most is my intense hatred for the word "heaps." Can't explain it, but man, I am RAGING after that.

  • My favorite part is where she suggests that if any of her friends and family see something that they'd like to spend their money on for her baby, and it isn't on her list, "maybe just run it by us first".

    I think I would respond saying that I had decided not to burden them with any baby gifts at all.

  • That was awesome! Thank you for posting! So much more helpful than a simple registry!

  • Indifferent If I got a message like that on FB I would decline to go to the shower and save my money.  I hate when someone dictates what I can and can't spend MY money on.  I mean come on be grateful you get anything!

    Yep.. She was doing it because she loves and respects her family and friends... Not because she thinks they're morons who can't pick out a useful gift if their lives depended on it or because it would be an enormous pain to have to return something at ____ weeks pregnant.

  • There is no way that I would go to that shower! I would tell her that this was the most selfish and condescending I had ever read and refuse to "burden" her with any more gifts for her child. The nerve of some people!

    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.

    You're right... They could run their crappy, moronic ideas by her first so she can reject them right to their faces.

    Hahaha, that's great.

    On the off chance that I'd actually purchase something for this crazypants, I would buy the loudest thing possible that subsequently had the largest amount of small pieces that required an extremely time consuming assembly.

    I truly hope she got 25 monogrammed princess dresses. 

     

    She wanted princess dresses! She said they should buy her a nice, expensive outfit because she has too many jumpsuits or whatever.

     

    And I love how the girl in the comments is telling her what a good idea it is. Maybe her friends really are brain dead and need the help.
