A friend's pregnancy and upcoming "gender reveal party" has made me aware of this new (?) trend-- a party where all the friends and family are invited to come and witness the parent's discovery of the unborn baby's gender.
When I found out our friend's were planning one, my first reaction was confusion (why would everyone else care?), and a feeling that perhaps these parents-to-be were wrapped up in their own little world a bit much. The baby's gender doesn't affect any of the rest of us, and personally I'm a more private type, so I wouldn't be inclined to share every detail of everything with all my friends and family. So I'm really curious how other people perceive these parties.
What do you think? Parents wanting as much attention as possible? Cute trend? Would you plan one for yourself? Why/why not?
