 I received an invite to a baby shower today. Inside it says the parents are registered at 2 stores, okay cool. It goes on to say please bring a book instead of a card.. Alrighty then.. Finally it says help the parents out & bring an unwrapped pack of diapers.. Seriously??? These people have plenty of money & this is their second daughter... Is it normal to ask so much of a guest? I am going to get her a cheaper gift then I originally planned to.

It may be normal for them, but I think its rude to be that demanding with gifts. I had a raffle where bringing a pack of diapers got you an entry...it seemed like a good way to get more diapers.

Wow!  Dictating gifts is so not acceptable.  I'd be sending my regrets.

Who is throwing the party? The parents may not know that is what is being requested. 

I love the idea of books instead of cards.

 Oh she knows.. She basically planned it herself.

Eh, just bring whatever you want, card or book, diapers or no diapers.

 What was the prize? Mine was for a $25 to a local movie theater

I would get them one thing. Most likely just a pack of diapers.
