Here we go again
So SD10s birthday is coming up in a few weeks.
She has been begging to have a roller skating party.
About 3-4 weeks ago when DH and I were dropping off SD at BMs SD told BM that is what she wanted to do for her bday. BM said she would call around and book the party for her.
I knew where this was gonna go. Same thing happened last year.
I picked up SD on my way home from work on Friday and SD started talking about wanting to have the party. I said "didn't your mom book it already?" To which she said no.
No excuse for this BM did recently lose her job, so she has plenty of free time... but she couldn't be bothered (the place is less than 5 min from her house). It's not about the $, all she had to do was go get info. We've always had a "joint" party (we all get along, though we are FAR from friends lol). When I say "joint" I mean we plan it, book it, pay for everything (after BM has dragged her feet on it), and then we invite her to said party.
So this weekend SD and I went and got the info. DH spoke with BM and she said everything sounded good to her. So, I've already booked the place, did the invites (SDs birthday is the weekend after they get back from Christmas break... So as far out as it is we need to get them to SD this week so she can pass them out at lunch/recess on Friday).
I don't want to step on BMs toes... But if she had it her way, SD wouldn't have so much as a friend over, let alone a birthday party.
