    Ew! The games are the part I hate the most and the reason I will avoid most baby showers unless they are good friends of mine!

    I think you 'Co-Host' is a boob. That said, it could be she is waiting to be told what to do. I think Pal has a great idea, call her up and give her a list of stuff to do/bring and don't give her a chance to say no. And at the party, give her chores, such as setting the table or getting everyone refills on their drinks, et cetera.

    Are you available to do a shower for me? I am too old to have a baby, I'm already married, and there is nothing of interest going on in my life, but I can make something up if you need an excuse to give another party! :lol:

    It may be too late to get her to do anything but take credit for a job well done. She may just be so self serving she actually thinks sending out invitations is doing a lot.

    While I think it unfair of her to "co-host" and not pull her share of the weight, I labor under the motto, "don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed." That little saying has gotten me through a number of situations, including a live in BIL who stayed for 2 years, 3 months, 5 days, 11 hours and 34 minutes (but who's counting) and did nothing.

    Thanks for all your words of wisdom. We had a fantastic time - I felt it all day Sunday!!!!!!

    The "co-host" did herself in, she was late by almost a half hour and then left early to go see her boyfriend. The bride was not happy and everyone figured it out pretty easily how much she hadn't done and they all thanked me for everything I had done. I did it for the bride and she had a great time and that is all that mattered.

    You will never go wrong, doing what is in your heart for the object of your good deed. Sometimes, we allow bystanders to rob of us joy because they don't respond the way we think we should, but we must always do what is in our heart to do.
    You got a fine reward by having a happy recipient.
    I am glad it turned out so fine.

    I meant to say: the way we think THEY should ... sorry for the misstated pronoun. (see? I do know the difference! LOL)

    Dear Missi,
    Oh boy.. Emotions are high alert for weddings. They should be outlawed.. err.. interesting word.. In-law/Out-law...

    You are part of a "team" with the number of one. Credit to two, but work load and cost to one.. Sorry you are in this position..

    The wedding is going to happen anyway.. Take any offers, smile and remember the "friend" that became a "partner" for never again on your list.

    Good luck, smile.. have fun ! It is the brides day.. We all just have to work so hard for it all !!!

    Ellen
