Okay, so I am a little disappointed that no one is acknowledging baby number three. I know, it is selfish. I don't want anything huge, maybe 5-6 people, maybe a diaper party, or tea or dessert or something. Just something to say that they acknowledge the baby to be.
But I won't get one. My mom believes that a person gets one shower for the first baby only, for any babies after that....there is NO acknowledgement at all, aside from family coming to visit hours after the birth, expecting food and coffee and tours of the house etc....... No friends are planning anything.
BUT.....I would get more than one shower if......the babies had different fathers or if I had got divorced and remarried, or if the babies were 10 years apart.
Does your family have any crazy shower rules? I would love to hear them.
ETA: I changed the thread title.....I guess what I am referring to is not really a shower (ie. gifts) I am just referring to ANY type of acknowlegement of second, third etc babies....like a lunch, tea, etc. Not neccessarily gifts...just a get together or some kind of *oh you are having baby*acknowledgement.
