Baby Shower Blues

I don't have a great deal of 'mommy friends' out there. That's a funny statement considering two friends (one I've know for almost 15 years and the other for about 10) are pregnant right along with me. One is a first time mom, one is not.

But we don't always go DO things together. I expect we will once we're on Maternity Leave and I'm very much looking forward to that. We all have our on herd of friends that we hang out with on a regular basis and each friend means something different to us.

Here's the thing that is bothering me just an little eensy weensy bit... they all have friends who are the "let me host your baby shower!" type of friends. I do not.

Let me just say that I'm NOT complaining about my friends, I wouldn't trade them for anything. I have fabulous and inspiring friends that I speak with every single day.

Considering the fact that my mother and I have been slightly 'on the outs' for a while, I think I'm not going to get a baby shower this time around. I'm a little saddened by that... and a bit too proud to ask anyone to hold a shower for me. It would feel wrong.
