Baby Sprinkles

Haha! If you’re like me the title of the blog made you think of something else didn’t it? Actually, Baby Sprinkles is the new term for baby showers for baby #2, 3, 4 etc… And well, I’ve already voiced my opinion on that!

Either way you slice it, a baby shower by any other name is still a baby shower. I think what makes me feel sad about this is that there seems to be gift grabbing mentality going on. People register for each baby they have. You’re asked to bring gifts that are expensive. You’re asked to bring extra diapers for a raffle. What happened to having your second child when you could afford to do so?

I was beginning to feel pretty old fashioned and Grinch-y for feeling this way until I found a site that I absolutely love. It’s called Etiquette Hell. There are people who feel like I do! For a second baby and beyond, I bring a gift for the baby after they arrive on the scene. I’m all for throwing a party but the mandatory gift based on your registry is just too much for me!

  1. Susan! I have a friend that is having a graduation party for her Masters degree and has created a gift registry (comprising of only household items) for herself. I have my own opinions on this but would love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks!

  2. Susan! I have a friend that is having a graduation party for receiving her Masters Degree and she has created a gift registry for herself for the occasion. I have my own opinions on this but would like to hear your thoughts! Also, as a note, she didn’t send the registry to all the invitees, only her close family and friends.

    Thanks!
