[ - ] S/O of the baby shower post below. Would you be offended by this: DH and I have 2 kids. My mom passed away, and my only sibling hasn't spoken to me in a very long time. Pretty much my only family is the family I gained when DH and I married. I never had a baby shower; no one ever threw me one. However, DH's brother is now expecting a baby with his wife, and my MIL is throwing a baby shower for her. (Also, my youngest is 1, so it's not like ages have passed and things have changed for my MIL). Also, for what it's worth, MIL and I get along just fine. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No--usually shower is only for first child. Never heard of a shower for a second child, unless it is just a lunch with friends where people bring cute clothes and bows/baby legs/little cute stuff. His mom wants to do something sweet for her little girl--you shouldn't take this kind gesture towards your SIL as a slight or insult. [ Reply | More ]

Where are you socializing where, as a mother of three kids already, you are feeling forced to answer questions about your not getting a baby shower? If you are not being specifically asked questions about this non-event, then you are probably bringing it up in conversation...which would explain why people are trying to say something nice ("oh, I'm sorry!") in response--because they obviously think t hurt your feelings if you are still talking about it after 3 kids.

In that case, it is bizarre that your dh's family members are apparently close enough to give you multiple condolences about your lack of baby showers for all three kids, but weren't close enough to you to: (a) plan a shower while you were pregnant or (b) notice or care at the time that you weren't having showers. This just seems bizarre that only now would this become a big deal for multiple members of his family... [ Reply | More ]
