This isn't the first instance of her either setting something up on our weekend for DSD and us telling her no she can't go, or telling DSD about an event and getting her all excited, but then saying well we have to check with Daddy and Jen... so we always end up looking like the bad parents who don't want her doing anything... which isn't true!! But we only get DSD EOW... That time is our's, period. Set stuff up on the 9 billion other days you have with her. :
Sorry... had to vent... the newest one?
We have DSD for Thanksgiving and that weekend this year. My Mother planned our baby shower for this weekend in part because of this. DSD's Mom knows our shower is the 29th, and at first was all, "of course she should be at your shower!"
Then we get an email last night... "What time is your shower again on the 29th? Alex was invited to a birthday party that day at 2:00 and she Really Really wants to go! Can you let her leave your shower early?"
The shower starts at 1:00... and she knows this too. Why would she even tell her daughter about the birthday party when she saw what date it was on??? She knew it would not be feasible for her to go. So of course now she gets to tell DSD, "Daddy and Jen won't let you go to your friend's party." :
Family should come first. I'm just so upset over this and am now anxious about dealing with DSD's disapointment about the party during the shower.
