So, My MIL and my mom are suppose to be throwing my baby shower. The problem is, that my MIL can't make up her mind where she wants to live. She has 2 houses, DH and I were renting one, and we just moved into a condo that we bought. She keeps saying she wants to move back into that house, and then changes her mind. She has been doing this for 2 months now. (We had the same problem with our wedding, because we wanted it in her backyard, which is why we ended up moving into the house in the first place.)<br><br>
Anyway, I can't have it at my mom's house, because it is too out of the way, and my mom doesn't keep a very clean house. So, my mom mentioned that we have it at our place. I think it makes a little sense- that way I don't have to transport any gifts, I can move them directly to where they need to go. But, I don't want to have to clean up after a party/shower being 7 months pregnant either!<br><br>
I am just so sick of my MIL not making up her mind. We were planning on having it at her house (where-ever she is living), but since she can't give me an answer as to what address to put on the invitations.. (Frustrated!)<br><br>
What would you do? Would you have your shower at your house if you were in my position?

I would, I think it would nice. And convenient.<br><br>
I'd just ask the host (your mom or MIL, whoever) to help clean before and after. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Yeah, I think I'd save myself the frustration and have it at my house if I were you. I'd also subtly mention before hand that you would really love the extra help of your MIL and mom to help clean up afterward.<br><br>
It sounds like too much hassle to wait for MIL to make up her mind.

Having it at your house would be fun and I think the clean up would be easy since it is your mom and MIL organizing, it should be easy enough to tell them they need to help you clean-up!
