My boys were born in '88 and 91', so a lot of time has passed. I have several nieces who've had babies in the past few years. Showers for every baby seems to be the trend, no matter the spacing of the babies or the gender. When I had my boys, it was rare to have 2nd baby showers. Not unknown, but not typical.

The worst gimme-pig baby shower situation I've known of happened about 25 yrs ago. A shower was held for a young MTB. There were about 20 people at the shower. Seems she wasn't happy with the turnout and requested that the host plan another shower for her! So the host did that, mailing invitations to those of us who'd attended the first shower only a couple of weeks before. I declined.  :o

Oh dear. 25 years? She might be a grandmother soon enough, I wonder if she will impose that attitude on the next round of baby showers!

I didn't think about that.  :) Let's hope she's learned!
