Well Alaynna's father and I aren't together anymore. I was originally going to do her party tomorrow but my kids and I have all had a stomach virus and didn't want to spread it so we postponed it till next weekend. It was a joint party for her and my son (who turned 6 on march 13). This is also the 2nd time we have had to postpone...the first time the kids had strep throat.
ive been getting a lot of negative feed back for having my son and her party together because its her first birthday and should be done separately.
between my boyfriend and I we have 8 kids. we are trying to cut corners and combine partys to save on money. we always have (we have 3 girls born in june also).
I honestly don't see anything wrong with it. im having it at my moms house cause her place is bigger and we have always done the kids partys there.
Im decorating the dining room for Alayanna in her theme with all her decorations and setting up a small table for my son in the living room and decorating that room with his theme and decorations. So nothing will be combined. they have their own separate spaces.
what do you guys think?
im also hearing a bunch of stuff cause tomorrow my ex (her father) is coming to get her for a few hours on her birthday so he can see her too.
since we aren't doing the party I agreed and hes picking her up around 10 and said he would have her back by like 2-3 in the afternoon,
I keep getting comments that I must not love her cause im not spending the full day with her. ill still have her most the day. but shes his child too and I refuse to be like that and tell him no. At least hes making an effort to continue to be in her life unlike some dads.
idk im just kinda frustrated with the snide comments from people and I know I shouldn't let it bug me but it does lol
