I've lurked this board for a while and have a question that I think you all are the best people to ask. I was invited to a shower for DH's cousin's wife at the beginning of February. It's at a church hall. It is her 2nd child in less than 3 years-- the first was when she was in high school with a different guy. This is DH's cousin's first child. DS will be 3 months old at the time and we're still BFing. The envelope just invites me, and I don't suspect that kids are invited (though I am going to ask SIL if her 5 yo girl was invited). DH has work obligations during the time of the shower, so I can't leave DS with him. MIL is my go-to babysitter since she lives nearby- but she will also be at the shower.
WWYD: Bring DS and attend the shower or skip the shower? I would send a gift if I skip. On the one hand DS would probably sleep in his carseat the whole time and I'm sure the aunts would love to see him. On the other the MTB is kind of immature and might think of me bringing DS as "stealing her spotlight."
Thanks for any advice!
