My BFF's fourth child (first for her DH) was born last week. Another friend of hers just asked me if anyone was throwing a baby shower for my BFF. The thought of throwing her a shower only briefly crossed my mind because... well... this is her fourth child, third daughter. And I had always heard that baby showers were only for the first child - or when the child is of a different gender that the others. The friend also suggested that maybe one should be thrown for my BFF's DH. She's stocked up pretty well on things from buying on sale and by making things.
But... What's the rule of thumb? Should I be throwing her another baby shower? Her last shower was three years ago when I threw her one for her third child, second daughter. And I did it then because I didn't get to throw her one for the other two.
Added: Come to think of it.. She did mention what great shower ideas she had for me when I have a child.... Since I'm not even remotely pregnant yet... Maybe she was hinting...??
