Sara sent us a question about baby showers for additional pregnancies… how do you plan them?
I am not a Mom, but I have a lot of friends entering that stage of their lives. One topic that I have come across recently in conversation and on the web is whether it is appropriate to have a shower for a second (or third, or seventh) child.
I had always thought it was the norm to have a shower for every baby — I am all for reusing and hand-me-downs, but doesn’t a new life deserve some new things? Maybe not the “baby-basics,” but what about a picture book with a personal message? A hand-made blanket?
Given that some people don’t like the idea of a baby shower for second or third children, how can you plan one that addresses the concerns, while maximizing the awesome?
