I recently asked a mutual friend of mine if she'd heard about a baby shower for our other friend. She hadn't heard of any thing, and I told her if she wanted to I'd help her throw a shower. As in plan it, invitations, games, etc. She said she would get the cake because she got food stamps. That sounded great to me, since cakes are expensive. I told her I could probably help with a diaper cake since she said some one she knew made them. However, when plans were run by the pregnant friend, she decided she wanted a cake from a high dollar bakery, she changed the location from a house to a place that will cost money to rent, and she's changed the date three times already. This is turning into a much bigger pain and expense than I anticipated. My DH is the only one working and I don't have my own money. I can't help pay for a cake, a diaper cake, renting a banquet room and get a gift as well. I don't mind helping, but I can no longer offer any financial help since the plans have changed so drastically. I don't know what to say to the mutual friend now that doesn't make me sound like a bitch, or cheap skate. What would you say?
