So my hubby talked to his mom last night about this whole shower business. And she is concerned about the hard feelings it may create if she plans the shower. So the hubs has decided that we will plan the shower ourselves. Now I know the rules of etiquette say that throwing a shower for yourself is tacky – and I tend to agree. So I just don’t know what to do. Besides, there is the extra expense and time involved in planning it ourselves.
Look, I know it’s just a silly party. And I know what REALLY matters. My baby and my husband. That’s what it’s all about. Part of me doesn’t give a shit about a party. But part of me is also sad and disappointed. And envious. I want to share this happy occasion with my family.
But maybe I’m being unrealistic in my expectations? Am I being irrational to think that my mom may want to do something nice for her daughter?
