My son is 8 and I'm expecting my second baby by January. My co-workers are graciously throwing me a shower later this year. After my son outgrew his baby items I gave them to friends who needed them. Since then I have not had any need for nursery items or baby things.
Now that DH and I are planning for a new nursery, we are realizing all that we will need all over again. I planned on buying my own nursery furniture, stroller, car seat, play pen, swing and high chair as Walmart has great deals if you buy them at once online.
My mom was mentioning my SIL throwing a shower for my new baby so my friends and family could attend. I would never ask her to do this for me. I feel like it's an imposition on my friends, family, etc. Is this poor taste?
I have no problem with a covered dish dinner for my girlfriends and relatives but I can't see asking for gifts. Isn't it rude to ask for second baby gifts? What's the rule now?

It's kind of a long situation, but could you do this to your kid?
