I am getting ready to send out my baby shower invitations. I have alot of friends who have small children under the age of 7. My dilemma is..my mom is paying for the shower at a restaurant and I really do want the expense to be as minimal as possible. most restaurants charge by the number of people that show up. I don't want to be rude with my guest because I love kids I am just trying to take my mom into consideration...and her wallet. I was wondering if anyone else has asked on the invitations for small children not to attend. Another thing..my husband will be at the baby shower and I am taking my kids but my youngest one is 8 and my 2 oldest are 12.

your baby shower attendance may be cut in half if you say no kids. Not every one will be able to get a sitter (or maybe they will? who knows) Are you willing to make exceptions if someone calls and says, "I really wanted to come, but I just can't get a sitter". If you would let them come, then it really isn't fair to the other guests that do have to get a baby sitter (and some have to pay for the sitter, so the meal at the restaurant would probably be cheaper than the baby sitting fee) Its a slippery slope.... I'm kinda an ALL or NONE kinda girl.
Good Luck to you
