I was wrong

Well, I was wrong....

I thought for sure everyone would attend Wyatt's party this year without any issues, concerns, or problems.  This is not the case.  Well, they will be attending but only because it is being hosted on a Sunday.  WTH.

I was basically told that someone else's birthday was more important.  Someone who isn't even family.  Really?  This from my own family. 

I guess I was wrong in thinking that everyone still felt that Wyatt was so close.  I could never imagine choosing a friend over a family member, but maybe I am incorrect. 

Well, the party will go on with or without everyone.  Wyatt is my son, our son... and we will be there to give him the party he deserves. 

I understand that when others pass their birthdays aren't celebrated.  However, most of the time they have lived to celebrate several birthdays, not that this means their birthday should be celebrated. 

I ask this - if you lost a child and you decided to celebrate their birthday would you want your immediate families there?

I have also found that the more time that passes we get less support, even from immediate family. I wish it wasn't like that, but what do you do? I have learned that I need to make plans for what feels right in my heart and usually that involves not inviting others to actually be present mainly because I don't want to be let down. We actually went away to a lake house for Mikayla's birthday just my husband and our son last year and it was perfect. No expectations of others, and we did only what felt right to us without having to be worried about others. I am sorry you're having to go through this.
