Baby showers have long helped parents prepare for their impending needs. Friends and family not only provide support, but also car seats, clothing, toys, etc.
Now, a new shower has been born that allows grandmothers to enjoy the benefits of the new status– Grandma Showers! But not everyone thinks these showers are a good idea.
Blogger Donne Davis wrote about the trend, saying “What I envision for this ‘shower’ would be for the seasoned grandmas to shower the grandma-to-be with words of wisdom. They could each write down a bit of advice they’ve learned as grandmas and share it in the group.” However, Davis can see why some people think these showers are a bad idea– especially if it “takes away from the mom’s spotlight” or becomes all about presents.
