My baby girl is about to turn 3. I know, I’m just as shocked as you are. We’ll be heading to San Diego again in July so that’s where the majority if her celebration will take place. However, before we go, I’d like to celebrate with family.
Last year, around the time, the news of my “new family” was pretty new – atleast to my dad. (RJ) My mom was still panicked about the whole thing and my brother was beside himself – just trying to keep it together. It made perfect sense that we hold 2 seperate parties for Glory. One for my mom’s side & one for my dad’s.
This year, I’m unsure.
I’m blogging because I’m sure I have readers who come from split families. 50% of marriages end in divorce so surely some of you have had to deal with this kind of situation. What do you do? Do you seriously have 2 parties every year so your parents don’t have to see each other? Or do they play nice and comfy and make it work for the kids?
I’m not trying to be difficult and certainly don’t want to push anyone toward a place that feels uncomfortable. Honestly, 2 parties are hard to plan and because we’re leaving town so soon after, the timing is extra hard.
I’m considering planning one party, inviting everyone, and see who shows up. But I worry a whole portion of my family won’t.
