So I know this isn't like a disaster but I've realized that nearly all of my friends are guys. I have a handful of friends that are girls and my two best friends want to have a friends only baby shower. I've been trying to list people and I've only got 7 people plus my two best friends. A couple are old friends I haven't talked to since high school and so they are very unlikely to come. I'm really worried its only going to be like 5 people and going to be mega lame!
I don't know if I should tell my friends that they should plan something with my mom (lots of relatives are far away and probably won't come) so we can fill it out. The other side of it is that I think they were going to plan something a bit...unconventional...so I don't know if that would work well with my mom's work friends and relatives. My mom has already said she doesn't want to throw a party (not really her style to plan these sort of things). The good thing is that I know my MIL will probably have a HUGE thing planned for me since this is her first GK and she's sooooo excited and has TONS of people she wants to invite to celebrate (although most I won't know). The other thought was to combine my family and DH's family for one huge shower but again that leaves us with the 5 friend baby shower by itself.
And the guilty part....I worry that we won't get enough to get us ready for the baby. I know we can do it ourselves but it would be great to be showered in gifts to help us out. I've got a job nannying/cleaning for a family member so that will get us through but I want to try and minimize how much we need to buy ourselves. Alright...vent over and back to packing for moving back into our house! :P
