Back to the original post - why was this child at the shower? Were children invited? Did the mom just decide not to get a babysitter? My kids are grown now - 23 and 26. When they were growning up, if kids were invited to whatever function we were going to then they were with us. If kids weren't invited, if I couldn't get a babysitter then I didn't go. My opinion, and only my opinion, I didn't think it was fair to the other guest who didn't bring their chindren for me to bring mine and by the same token, it wasn't fair to my children to bring them if there wouldn't be other children there for them to play with. It just made sense to me.
