First, I will admit to my to my prejudice that I consider baby showers and bridal showers a request for gifts. Heck, their name even derives from "showering" the guest of honour with gifts as she sets up a new household (wedding), or begins the perilous journey into motherhood (wow- I usually give baby food cook books and mini blenders- I should be giving bottles of whiskey!). Anyways- I received an invitation today for a baby shower for a second baby, and I find this very weird. Am I the only one who thinks it strange to ask for gifts to get set up for the second child? I would think they would have most of the stuff from the first one; I did.
