The Great Debate: Baby Sprinkles

Since my last Great Debate went so well and sparked a lot of great conversation, I thought I would try another one.

I also want to clarify, I don’t necessarily believe in having these parties or not, they are things I have seen discussed with family, friends and on other blogs, and I wanted to discuss them here as well.

So what is a sprinkle? I first learned of them on Real Housewives of Atlanta (don’t hate) and they seemed to be exclusively a Southern “thing”. A sprinkle is a party to celebrate the second (or third, etc…) pregnancy.

It seems like these events, are less event-like, and more of a lunch with friends type of affair. It is also much more intimate than a baby shower. This usually very close family and friends instead of all the women in your families.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind having a lunch gathering celebrating a pregnancy, but I would also probably just call it a girls brunch, as I usually hate being the center of attention.

I also wouldn’t be upset or offended if someone didn’t throw a luncheon for me or the future child.

So now it is time for you to weigh in. Did I get the definition of Sprinkle right? What are your thoughts on one?
