It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To: Kids Are Ruining My Bridal Shower

A bride-to-be is upset because her maid-of-honor can’t find a sitter for her kid. Is her bridal shower ruined?

(page 2 of 2)

Dear bride-to-be: What a shame that such a lovely event is being overshadowed. I agree with you that Nephew doesn’t belong at your shower. See if you can find someone to watch him, perhaps a neighbor or one of the guest’s husbands (who most likely won’t be attending the shower). If neither you nor your sister-in-law can find someone, then I suggest you create a quiet corner in your home or wherever the shower is being held. Furnish it with kid-friendly stuff like crayons and coloring books. Alternatively, you could even set up a DVD player (portable or not) and grab some kid-friendly movies for him to watch. The one thing you should not do: “uninvite” your sister-in-law and nephew, which will create a rift that time may not repair.
