The Invites

The Batman invites...well, it is really more of a theme.

Backstory: Friend never wanted to have kids. So, back about 5 - 7 years ago when her H asked if he could name their child, she said yes. (Only because she assumed she would never have one, not because she trusts him with anything. She is the biggest control freak ever). Her H said he wanted to name the kid Batman. So...that has been the joke/the baby's name.

She has a Batman shirt, Batman invites, a big AWy announcement about how she *just knew* it was going to be a boy, etc.

So yeah, that is how you get Batman invites. IMO, it wouldn't be so damnable if it wasn't all over the place. A Batman shower, OK, but putting it everywhere loses it's charm, quicklly.

    What started out as a joke has just gotten really, really old due to AWish behavior. Clearly, the baby has bottled her brain. Make note to self about this, and potential shop lifting side effects of child bearing and rearing.

    I don't think you should blame the baby for her bottled brain.

    They need to keep that story where it belongs, as an inside joke. Not the theme to the baby shower.

    THIS

    Does this mean I should have had a margarita-themed shower?  I think not.
