I'm expecting #2, and I'm very anti-sprinkle personally (though I've attended ones for others). I know I'll be thrown a work shower and I don't know how to handle it. Do I just come up with some things I want and be thankful, or do I try to decline without looking snobby?
The social committee just announced a joint shower for 2 ladies due late spring, one having #2, other #3, and it's in a conference room at work so everyone can attend. Informal, potluck food, like many of our gatherings. And each girl was asked to post a list of things they need.
Another coworker is due in summer (also with #2), and me in Sept, and they've already hinted that the next party will be for us. I've only worked here for a year, and I don't want to offend anyone, especially the other moms who are graciously accepting the showers.
