There's no limit to what a basic woman can and will do in the name on staying, well, basic. Typically a trend follower, she'll sometimes turn to peers for validation while sipping on that seasonal pumpkin spice latte and enjoying a pair of comfortable leggings. Let me be clear: there's nothing wrong with being basic. It's not a crime to enjoy mainstream trends. Hell, I'm a proud basic mom, and knew I would be way before I had my daughter. In fact, there are more than a few gender reveals that prove you're a basic pregnant woman, and I managed to, somehow, incorporate all of them.
To be honest, I have mixed emotions about gender reveal parties. I understand that some soon-to-be parents want an exciting, unique, and festive way to tell loved ones the sex of their baby. And hey, to each their own. In fact, I had hoped for a certain gender during each of my pregnancies, and did, in fact, experience a little gender disappointment. After a few days, though, I realized I was being ridiculous. My children are two of the best things to ever happen to me, regardless of their genders. So, in the end, gender really doesn't matter. If the baby and mom are healthy, that's all that's truly important, right?
So if hosting a party that divulges your baby's gender in a big, celebratory way is your thing, here's some of the types of parties that prove you're, well, a little basic. I say own it, mom. After all, you get pumpkin spice lattes and leggings when you join our club.
