Okay.. so my sister wants her bridal shower a month after I have my little one.. I am one of the two matrons-of-honor. I understand that I am supposed to organize and get all the bridesmaids together to figure out this whole thing... problem is - I live 3 hrs away. I know I should suck it up and just do it but this isn't my first rodeo ya know, this is my fourth kid (and last) and I know what my body needs to heal.. and i imagine more time as I am older this go-around. She's very upset that I have told her I can help plan but will probably not be able to be there as a definite YES but more as a maybe. With the driving, dealing with a newborn and planning it may be too much for me.. 3 hrs up, 3 hrs back. She doesn't have space for me to stay overnight with everyone else that she has coming out for her. She feels I am being ridiculous and exclaimed "... it's a month after the baby --- that's a lot of time. You can't make it?"
I guess my questions are two-fold -- am I being ridiculous? AND... how would you handle it?
