Hmm that’s a tough situation. Maybe you could suggest, in some way, that someone from your side throws a second shower? Or maybe the shower venue will be large enough that everyone will be able to spread out into different groups?

Why are kids being invited to your baby shower???   I’ve been to a few baby showers and none of them had other kids invited.  Baby showers are mostly adult-only events.  I would put your foot down and insist on a no-kid rule.  You shouldn’t be having to handle other people’s out-of-control kids.

I think you have every right to enjoy your shower. Have the host employ a STRICT no kids rule, and let your Mom know that it will be a more small/intimate shower, and that you won’t be able to invite the whole extended family.

Family’s play the guilt trip card a lot, but I would encourage you to take steps to maintain boundaries and to believe you deserve peace in your life!

Go with the ‘no-kids’ policy. End of story. And whoever doesn’t like it can well…. umm…. shove it!
