Hey ladies I have never posted on this board before but I have lurked. I don't know if this question has been asked.
My mother and mother in law offered to host me a baby shower. One is on one end of the county and the other is on the other end of the county. So there is 2 showers. This is my first baby. They did this because of travel issues. Our families live on opposite ends of the state.
Anyway my question is... What is the rule about the mother to be helping with the cost. My mom offered to throw me a shower and I was going to offer to help her pay for some of the food and decorations because I know her and my dad are short on money.
Alittle background: My father was dignosed with cancer last year and is undergoing chemo so most of their money is going to medical bills and savings because my dad is getting ready to go on disability.
Is this tacky? Should I offer or is there something else I can suggest to my mom to help her with the cost? I know she really wants to throw me a shower and her and my mother in law agreed on doing them seperate because of the travel of the family. What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
