I'll Probably Never Get Invited To Another Baby Shower Again

I really, really want to know what you guys thing about this. Y'all are usually my voices of reason so tell me... am I being unreasonable? Click over and comment.
Yeah, okay. I can feel a bunch of you waving indignant index fingers at computer monitors saying the birth of every baby is precious and that child deserves a celebration. Even though I can’t imagine your baby at twelve questioning why you didn’t throw him/her a shower, I’ll buy that. I just don’t want to buy anything else. And I don’t think I should be considered stingy or cheap because of it. Celebrate your baby. I will too. I’ll celebrate my ass off. But don’t go crazy at the registry.
Baby Shower For Second Baby... Yes or No? It's what I'm babbling about today.
