Baby Shower ?

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

So there was a bit of baby shower drama going on yesterday. Suffice it to say I spent about half my day in tears with Mike trying to console me. I was trying to help out the people throwing my shower, and somehow ended up insulting someone. This person isn't my family, but I still feel badly about it. I honest to god was trying to help out to EASE stress, and somehow ended up CAUSING stress. Go effing figure, right!

So as yesterday Mike and I decided we shall just sit like little children and wait politely until the shower gets here. We won't try to help, or make things any easier. Just sit and wait. We don't want to step on any toes, or make anyone feel taken advantage of, make anything hard, etc.

Really, all I want is my 20 closest family and friends in one spot, with a cake, maybe some finger foods, and a couple gifts thrown in would be nice. I don't need a themed shower, I don't need 50 people there, or a full spread of food items. Just people, love, fun, and maybe a cake. because I'm pregnant and cake sounds gooooood. ;)

My family is still super unexcited and uninvolved. They like to look at my big fat belly, but have no real correllation with the fact that big belly = future family member. Yah, they are clueless in the most insulting of ways.

I hope things go off without a hitch. I hope all family and friendly ties are kept in tact after the shower. I just don't understand WHAT IN THE WORLD makes people so WEIRD about baby showers and pregnant people and shiz. I'm still me. Just pregnant.

Aww that totally sux! So sorry you have to go thru that! I'm not doing anything for the shower, I just ordered the invites and gave them to my gf to take care of. The rest is up to family and friends. don't worry about it, just enjoy the shower and your friends and family!

I tried to comment you earlier but it didn't save or something...Anyway. Sorry about the drama, I had some with one of my showers but thankfully it's all smoothed over.

P.S. I think you were quoted in an article on thebump, I think they took it straight from the boards. Just seeing if you noticed.
