Baby Shower Advice From an Imperfect Mama

Dear E,


When I heard that you and your gorgeous husband were expecting your first baby, I wanted to shout for joy. When I heard your sister-in-law was handling the shower, I was a little less excited. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a very nice person…I think. I’m sure asking you if you’re going to get a boob job after nursing was well-intended. I’m also pretty certain that the tantrum she threw at your husband’s birthday party was just the result of a bad day.

3. Bottle Sterilizer: Unless you live in a remote area of the South American rain forests and don’t have access to fresh water or dish soap, there is no need for these.


4. Countless newborn cutesie outfits: Your baby will grow out of these in about five minutes.

5. Expensive...(more)
