I am not your typical age mom-to-be. My husband makes really good money. God has blessed us immensely. We have waited sooooooo long for this baby, we are prepared financially. I do not want a baby shower at all. I have always disliked showers. They are too cutesy, too corny, and too long. Under the pressure from church, I have agreed to a come & go couples shower after the baby is born. But now my family and my husband's family want to have showers too, with little Winnie the Pooh favors and all. (I am way too old to have Winnie the Pooh a guest at my shower). I would accept having an Open House Couples Meet & Greet the Baby with "no gifts" on the invite.
I know others love us and are excited about this new life too. And I do not want to be rude or offensive. I am old enough to know that a lot of things we think we need we don't and I don't want to get a whole bunch of useless baby stuff. I don't know about you but I took a bath in the sink, I slept in a crib w/o a matching changing table, I didn't have a bouncy seat, a play disk, a swing, etc....I had a walker and a playpen and was very well adjusted and loved.
Am I wrong to ask for this?
