Last time I had a baby, I was going from girls to a boy, so that would have been a good time for a shower. Well, the people closest to me basically dissed me and didn't give me one, even though I know they discussed it among themselves. I was pretty disappointed and felt embarrassed, as if I was asking (wanting) something very wrong. Anyway, now I'm having a boy after another boy, and even though we got rid of absolutely everything (we thought we were done), I'm embarrassed that two of my friends want to throw me a shower (not the same friends as before). I feel like everyone will wonder why we're doing it and they'll feel like I'm just being greedy. I honestly need all the baby stuff, but we can afford it so I don't need gifts. So, can you give me some shower alternatives? I'd love to just hang out and do something fun or relaxing with friends. Something celebratory without all the baby gifts. And it would have to accommodate a wide range of people/personalities/ages. Any ideas?
