so a friend of mine really wants to throw me a
baby shower, but i really don't want gifts. i will have 2u2, and #1 was team green, so i literally have all the basics (i have a/s thursday, and will find out what we are having this time). we've already bought car seat#2, we bed-share (no crib), we cloth diaper (don't need any)..
i know the word "shower" is used to "shower the mom/baby with gifts"...so what's a better term? i've heard sprinkle, but that still implies gift giving. "celebration of upcoming baby" sounds dumb. i need your collective creative minds, please!
i don't want to do lunch/dinner "out", but want pretty much a traditional baby shower (snacks, mingling, maybe a game or two), with no gifts.
FWIW, i want/need it to be before the baby is here bc in chinese culture we do a specific meet-the-baby party, that the parents (me and h) host, and we will be sticking to that tradition.
