3rd baby shower tacky????

My mother is hosting a small shower for my 3rd son. It will be in the evening and just close family, like 20 people. My life is really crazy right now, dh left for someone else about 2 months ago. I am living at my moms till my apartment is ready. I have everything my baby will need. I just think it's tacky to have a shower again. I have tried to tell her no but that gets me no where.

Yup. Showers are for baby #1. I would have refused more emphatically. People can bring gifts when they visit your newborn if they really want to.

I'm sorry for your recent troubles though.

Each child can have a celebration. There's nothing wrong with it. I didn't mind as much not having a baby shower for my second, because it was another boy and they're only 11 months apart, but I wish someone would've thrown me a shower for my baby girl.

We had one for our 3rd son but we did a diapers and wipes shower. Maybe ask her to do that so you can stock up on those instead of things tou don't need.
