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?
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.
One more question: How do I go about letting them know that he is only having one birthday party? I have told my parents and of course they are okay with it... but how do I let everyone else know?? Can I put it on the invite to come celebrate Owen's first and only first birthday??? Or should I just send them all an email letting them know what's up?
