👩‍👧 Mom vs. Mom-to-Be: The Baby Shower Showdown

Our mom-to-be is trying to plan her baby shower with her mom, but things get heated when it comes to deciding who makes the guest list. 📝 With a complicated family history and a recent divorce, our protagonist's mom is desperate to include her side of the family, even if it means inviting people our mom-to-be hasn't seen in years. 🕰️ When our protagonist tries to trim down the guest list, her mom pulls the 'I'm paying for it' card and insists on inviting whoever she wants. 😤 But our mom-to-be stands her ground, reminding her mom that it's her baby shower, not her mom's. 💪 The two leave their brunch in tears, with no resolution in sight. 😢 So, who's in the right here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐
