Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Uggg... sometimes people can be so ignorant!

So yesterday we took Grace to church. Brittany and her mom were in the nursery, and Brittany said Grace did pretty well as long as she didn't leave her side :p Sorry Brittany! Lol. But anyway.. when I was picking Grace up I was talking to Brittany, and this guy came in to pick up his son. Somebody mentioned something about the son not looking so hot, and the dad said something about how the son had been running a fever throughout the weekend. I remember thinking, "Well then why the heck did you bring him in here around the other kids??" But then I didn't think much more about it..
Well, around 8pm last night Grace's nose started running, then she ran a fever on and off all night. She barely slept at all! I gave her some medicine this morning because she was running a fever again, and her nose has been running like a faucet all day! I highly doubt that this is a coincidence. I am almost positive that she caught whatever that little boy had, and I am not too happy about it at all! If you know your child has been running a fever all weekend why on earth would you bring that child to the church nursery?? I would never do that!! Grace hasn't been sick in months.. my poor baby :( I hope it goes away quickly.

Also, this is unrelated, but am I tacky because I want to have a second baby shower? People on cafemom are saying it's "tacky." Heck, I just like to throw parties, and if people don't bring gifts I could care less. It would help us out, but I'm not going to be mad if people don't. There were a couple of people who told me they wouldn't be able to afford a gift for Grace shower.. they didn't bring one, but I didn't mind because we all still had a great time. Plus, this baby is the opposite sex, so we don't have a lot of stuff we can use for him. We are only inviting close friends and family, and as I have said before, I am not expecting anyone to buy us big ticket items. But now I feel like maybe I am going to make people think I am greedy or something.. what do you guys think?


  1. that is pretty ridiculous you know if your kid has a fever they are contagious, he shouldn't have brought his kids around other kids.

    as for two baby showers i had two one for friends one for family plus people brought stuff to the hospital when i had the boys. also i had the friend shower before baby family shower after so that the family could all see and hold the baby if they didnt come to the hospital. so idk you might want to think about maybe having a second shower after the baby comes? then as i said people can come and see the baby. hope that helps.

  2. I think you should have a party to celebrate baby's birth, instead of calling it a baby shower. :) Or maybe call it a baby "sprinkle", so they know big items are not expected.

    Oh and last but not least, ignore everyone on cafemom LOL.
