Is This The Worst Baby Shower Reaction Ever?

Section: Baby showers

An expectant mum infuriates those who missed her baby shower with a poem demanding presents

Cupcakes? Check. Baby bunting? Check. Smiles all round? Err… One mum-to-be hasn’t let baby shower etiquette get in the way of her trying to shower her guests (and no shows) with shame.

The cheeky mum-to-be sent out a poem in the post to the absent guests but the written plea for presents and money went down like a lead baby shower balloon.


So much so that one of the missing guests who claims to be just an ‘acquaintance’ of the peeved pregnant woman posted the poem to parenting site Mommyish for the world to see.  

The poem reads:

‘We’re sorry you missed the shower!
There was fun and games to be had
The food and drinks not too bad
The loot was a plenty

But we looked high and low and found none from you
Not even a shiny penny!

Babies need a lot
Of this fact we all know
So we’ve included some shops below!
If none are to your liking, and that we understand
Then grab a pen and get to writing
For checks are to our liking!'

The Family is registered at these stores and checks can be mailed to this address.’

And the awkwardness doesn’t stop there – it seems even the pals who did attend baring gifts didn’t escape got a different lyrical attack from this expectant mum.

‘We loved seeing you at the shower
Remember how the gifts they did tower?
We sorted them for hours
Upon sifting and sorting we noticed something amiss
For your gift didn’t match the list

To fix your situation we listed our stores below
But a check could also help us flow!’ 


Has this mum-to be officially been bumped off by her friends and family or has the baby shower gone a step too far?  Let us know in the comment box below…
