Baby Showers

In case you haven't laughed today

We just got a coed shower invitation for H's co-worker and his wife...from them. As if this wasn't bad enough, the e-mail, which was addressed to H, says that significant others are welcome, except for me, since they don't want kids there. Um, how about letting me decide whether I'd like to get a babysitter or stay home? Or just don't invite either of us. K thanks.

  • O.k. - wait - how exactly was this conveyed to you?  I have to know.

    But seriously- you aren't invited because they don't want your child there?  Yeah- why not tell you "no kids" and let YOU decide what to do?

    That's my question. Did it say YOU specifically??

    Either way, by email is rude and tacky.

    It gave all the regular invite stuff - time, place, etc... At the bottom of the invite there was a paragraph that said, "significant others are welcome, but please leave the kids at home! (So <my name> I guess that means you're out!) "

    Wow, that's pretty ridiculous. Does the couple have anything against you?

  • I've never even met her. MH is in a training program, and everyone else in his class lives in other states. They're just here temporarily and their wives and kids are at home. We happen to live here, so on a day-to-day basis MH is the only one with his wife and kid around. 

    The guy happens to be MH's partner in the class, so we've had him over for inner several times because he's living in a hotel and eating takeout every night. I guess that's not good enough though!

     MH has definitely declined the invite. 

    I'm loving the GIFs.

  • So glad your hubby declined. It was a good laugh from this end. The pics from posters are hilarious. Turns a tacky rude situation into a comical one.

  • I get the "you're not invited part" but how are they having a co-ed shower if the MTB isn't even there? Is the DTB hosting a get-together at a bar or something (reason kids might not be invited - although I'm not a fan of kids at showers anyway)? That is just strange, weird and rude! Obviously they have no kids...maybe DTB thinks once you have kids (meaning moms) you always have to stay home. lol

    The MTB is visiting for the weekend. The invite reads like she is hosting the party for him at the bar, as a man-shower, but significant others are welcome, except me.

  • The spiteful me says to have your DH go with your kids. Surprise! ;) But it's probably just wise to avoid it all together like your doing.
