This whole post confused me for the following reasons:
1. They had nothing left over from their daughter, as they lived in a studio apartment - yet a little while later, she says that the clothes left over from her daughter were pink and frilly, and her son couldn't use the bedsheets. Okay, so either you did have stuff left over or you didn't - what is the issue here?
2. They registered for a high chair and a swing, but no furniture - I thought a high chair and a swing were furniture. Then she says later on that the baby won't be using the swing for a couple months, and they would use a snugli instead of a stroller. Then what was the point of putting those items on the registry?
3. Due to complications, they did not know if the baby was going to live. Wouldn't you wait until possibly after the baby was born just to make sure the baby was out of harm's way before you had the shower?
4. Count me in as another person who doesn't understand why they saved up for four months for a shower, when they could have gotten tons of stuff for the baby in that time.
5. Nobody in the family could throw the shower, so the husband hinted to the sister in law to throw the shower - I thought family members weren't supposed to host the shower in the first place.
6. Why the need to keep saying how poor you are? If you had four months to get food, party favours, etc. that's four months of money saved that could have been spent on necessities.
7. How does she know how much the friend spent on the gift that was left at her home - secondly, why is she peeved that the lady didn't show up to the shower?
If the women really did treat her badly, then that was really pathetic of them to do, but I can find seven issues with this story that rub me the wrong way, so I'm not sure if I believe that things happened the way they are written.
