A Baby Shower For the 4th child?
I am 21 years old, and my mom, who is 39 just found out she is pregnant. This would be her fourth child, but the youngest right now is 9 yrs., which means she doesn't have baby stuff.
I would like to throw her a shower, but I don't know if it really is appropriate or not. Please help!
Hi Janet! Thank you for submitting your question. A baby shower would be a perfect way to celebrate the new baby. You are totally within etiquette rules to throw her one.
Since there is such a big gap in age from the last child, she is definitely going to need some help in getting restocked for the new baby.
You might know some people who feel it is inappropriate to throw her one since it is not her first child. But etiquette rules have changed over the years and it is ok to throw her a party. Every child is a gift and deserves a celebration.
Whether it is elaborate party or a small gathering of close friends and family, the fact that you cared enough to give her a baby shower will mean the most to her.
Best of luck!
