Just wanna have ONE birthday party...

Owen will be 1 in January. My husbands parents are divorced and his dad has a GF who is great and loves Owen and Owen loves her. No problem there other then his parents don't like being together in the same room. His dad will be just fine and I'm not worried about him or his GF its his mom I'm worried about. I shouldn't be BUT I want Owen to have only ONE birthday party. I do'nt want him to have 3 or 4 different ones. That's just to much. I want everyone, Ryans dad's side, mom's side, and my side all to come over and leave all their drama and BS at the door and enjoy his first birthday and enjoy everyone who is here. Is that being selfish or is it okay for me to ask everyone to join us for his first and only birthday party?

    That is not being selfish nor does it sound so. It sounds like you are being reasonable and mature about this. It is your son's first birthday party and he should have everyone he loves in the same room. Two or more parties may be too overwhelming for the little guy. I hope everyone can come to their senses and give Owen an enjoyable party.

      No, it's not too much to ask. Hugs.

        My ex inlaws and my family did not get along... I told everybody, this is when her party is, be here if you want, if there's fighting-you can explain to the little girl why. And left it at that.
        Now, because everybody lives so far away, I still tell my family when the party is, but that's about it. We usually have cake or cupcakes at grandma's next time we go. This year, maybe my parents can Skype with us to at least see them blow out candles and open presents. I know they miss out on that with mine.
