    Default Gender Party

    An entire occasion for announcing the sex of your child.

    Silly, fun, or soon-to-be classic?

    We did something similar with my second. We had a "Big Sister Party" for Alana, for close family members only. It was the evening of our big ultrasound. We had a nice dinner and people brought Alana "big girl gifts" to make her feel special. We bought a pretty pink dress and let Alana pull it out of a neutral color bag to announce the gender of the baby. It was a fun and special time for our family.

    As ridiculous as push presents.

    Ummm, fun maybe for your first baby if you REALLY love to entertain but I don't see them being a big hit for babies afterward. I guess that depends on if you have loads of friends who really care what your gender is, though. Perhaps, they do.

    I don't really see myself attending a gender party or putting one on. But I do admit there are some really cute ideas out there for gender parties!

    I'm hearing about these more and more lately!

    They aren't for us as we like to wait until birth to find out the gender. That said, I see why people try to make it climatic when they find out the gender early on in a pregnancy. A friend just did this as a family affair where the cake revealed the gender to everyone (parents included) ~ this was their 6th, (she has three from two prior marriages, he has 2 from one prior marriage) and the photos of the siblings and parents cutting the cake and whatnot were pretty cool.

    This is a total to each their own thing to me. If it makes people happy, then I'm all for it. I like any excuse to party, really

    I think they are nifty and there are some really cute ideas that I've seen lately, but I would never have one just because the important people are with me when we find out and the word gets out quick enough.
