It’s OK to say no to mom’s disrepectful request



June 25, 2019 - 10:27 AM

Dear Carolyn: As inappropriate as it feels to “need” a baby shower, my husband was just laid off and we, after several miscarriages, are finally expecting our first child in August.

My successful, established, younger sister very recently announced her upcoming nuptials at the end of the summer.

My mother just yesterday decided to no longer throw a baby shower for us until October at the earliest, yet I have been charged with organizing the bridal shower, set for two weeks prior to my due date.
