Ridiculous. I’m not even really a fan of multiple baby showers in general but in this situation it is a blatant gift grab.

Don’t even get me started on the people who accept government assistance yet continue to procreate. Mandatory birth control should be part of their handout.

My sister had another child about 18 months after her first. I threw here a shower for the first and a sprinkle for the 2nd. They first off were different sexes and she didnt’ register for the 2nd one either. She had all the big stuff it was just about celebrating the child. Most people bought her clothes. Her first shower had 85 people and her sprinkle had 20 people.  Just family and very close friends who would have bought something anyway.

Your fb friend sound gift hungry.

I can understand having a small party (family and close friends) to celebrate a new baby. Babies and parties are fun! However, the way your FB friends posts her registry in her statuses so people who can’t come can give her presents is pretty lame.

Since she’s a FB friend I’d just block her posts if you don’t want to totally “unfriend” her.

She’s obviously pretty ridiculous but there’s an easy way to avoid her nonsense if you’re not close friends.

@mwitter80: I’m with you on this! I think all babies should be celebrated, but probably to varying degrees. I’ve recently been thinking about this a lot because my cousin is pregnant with her second and I want to have a shower for her. I’ve encountered lots of different opinions about this. My feeling seems to be that all babies deserve to be celebrated, but perhaps one shouldn’t register for babies after the first.

It sounds like she’s returning the stuff and getting the money for it. Just my cynical $.02. There’s no way a person needs four cribs!

Wow, really?!  I would never post a registry on Facebook even if it were my first child!  Sounds like she just wants gifts, but I have no idea what she could possibly need!  I think posting that on Facebook is just tacky though, it should only go out to those who received a formal invitation.  But again, you don’t need four baby showers!

give her cloth diapers and some condoms…just kidding!

It sounds like it is time to at least ‘hide’ her, but I do feel bad for the kids.  Maybe you can get a savings bond in his name instead of a toy, etc.

yah, I had to hide a “friend” that was talking about her accidental pregnancy and how she was worried with all the drinking she’d been doing lately…ugh!  of course she then named her kid a “Twilight name” and was spouting off about politics all the time…hiding her felt great!
