I’m not sure why the conversation even came up (maybe because my sister was pregnant with her first child at the time), but I’ll never forget the discussion I had with my mother about baby showers. With a stern look on her face, she said that women only need to have a baby shower for their first child. Once you start having two, three, four or more kids, the parents need to figure out how to provide the essential items for their new baby on their own, because everyone else doesn’t have the money, nor the time, for all that. But not everyone thinks that way.
We told you recently that Keke Wyatt is expecting her eighth child (all of the kids came from both her first marriage, and current one to Michael Jamar), and to celebrate the new arrival, a baby shower was thrown for her over the weekend. And while she was excited about the festivities (she wasn’t too crazy about being caught in traffic on the way there though), a few of her Instagram followers put her on the spot about having baby showers for all of her kids:
Another woman said that considering that babies don’t know and probably don’t care about the showers folks have, it’s kind of tacky.
“It’s very tacky to have a baby shower for all your children. Thats[sic] like a person who moves often and has a house warming party every 2 years..really? At some point stop reaching out for gifts and just buy your own shit lol”
But Wyatt let the women know that all of her children are special, and should be equally celebrated:
Hey, when you have the money, you can do things like this. And who is it really hurting? Plus, the shower was thrown for her by a friend, so it doesn’t look like she asked for one:
But what do you think? Is it ‘tacky’ to have a baby shower for every baby? Or as long as you have friends and family who are willing and want to help you celebrate, is it all good?
