a little while ago i joined a local mommies network that has a forum and does playdates and other events. i've posted quite a bit over the last month or so, and we've attended a couple activities. yesterday a lady on the forum brought me some baby girl clothes since by way of girl stuff....we've got pretty much nothing. i know we still have 20 weeks until my due date but i'd rather start collecting what we can now rather than be in crunch time and have to worry about coming up with clothes and such at the last minute. (so anyone who has baby girl clothes they'd be willing to donate, i'd love to take them off your hands---we're really strapped financially so we can't afford to buy stuff!)
a few people have mentioned having a baby shower, since this one is a girl. but i've always been under the impression that baby showers are for your first baby...and any kids you have after that, no showers. i'm not in any way expecting a shower because of what i thought was the "social norm" of showers for one baby only. i don't know how i feel about it....would it be weird/awkward/wrong to have another shower and invite the same people to it? especially family members that are of an older generation? my son is only a little over a year old, so it wasn't too long ago that i had my first shower.
so what do you think? would it be socially acceptable to have one? would it make me look greedy? (i really don't want to look greedy.) did any of you have showers for subsequent kids? i would feel bad asking for a shower, but if someone offered to give me one? what do you think?
