Shower Ettiquette - The Baby Kind
Do you give a mama-to-be-again a shower? Is it a "must" or in poor taste? Courtney sent us this question to be discussed amongst the urbanMamas:
I read some posts on BabyBulletin and they ranged from of course to how tacky, and were very passionate on both sides. Many said "do what is the norm in your town" and/or "circle of friends", but I don't know what that is here in P-town. So here is my question: I have a friend with a 4-year old boy (will be almost 5 when baby is born), having a girl. She gave many of her baby things to me and others when we had kids (and we are still using them.) Would it be appropriate to host a shower? Maybe a "reused/recycled" shower? Something just for mama? Has anyone been to one? What is the norm in Portland? What do urbanMamas think?
