Tonight for the first time my ex and I are double hosting my DDs birthday party. It was his idea and I suspect his only intention was so we could split the cost but I agreed to not start conflict. I am super anxious about it. I am ok with his family but this is the first time my husband and his family will be joining in on something like this. DH will feel out of place like he can't run around and help DD with games and I just think it will be awkward all around. The party is at chuck e cheese and they sell beer. Giving up alcohol was not hard for me but boy do I wish I could drink tonight lol. For sure!!
Plus none of his family know I am pregnant so i sure hope they don't offer.
Wish me luck I make it through this!

Oh wow, I hope the time passes quickly, that would be a totally awkward situation to be in, so I don't blame you for being nervous about the whole thing.

GOOD LUCK!!! That must be hard!!
My son's bday party is tomorrow and my ex, my BF, and I had considered inviting my ex for a split second; because he's also new to NY and has no family or friends here. But we all decided it would be too awkward because my family is coming in from out of state (they hate my ex) and my BF's family will be there also. It would have only been just to save money.. but I figured I might as well suck up the cost and have fun instead.

Hope all goes well and the awkwardness is minimal! Kudos to you for agreeing to do a joint party. In the end, if your DD doesn't notice any tension and has a great time, then it will be an awesome memory for her of everyone being together, even if it is a little awkward for the adults!

Thats really good. Even if your Ex is only doing it to help with the cost, it is important for kids to see their parents able to interact with each other, esp for things like birthdays or the holidays. I think your daughter will really appreciate it when she is older. I know it maybe awkward for you but fortunately these things are only once a year. Kudos to you and your DH for doing a joint b-day. Good luck and I hope it turns out to be fun and not too much stress. *Bighugs* Its really great that you can do that for your daughter.

I really hope it goes great, and you guys are pretty awesome to even try something that you know will be uncomfortable.

Went great. The worst part of the party actually turned out to be my friend making a stupid comment when we were figuring out how to pay the bill "it's amazing you too even got along well enough to have sex to make a kid" We weren't even arguing at that point just trying to figure out how to split since I had already put the deposit down. And who even says that in public?? I thought DH was gonna snap out at her. My ex just said wow sure Bryan really wanted to hear that. But otherwise great night.

Thats great! Other than your friend making a stupid comment... did she drink any beer? Maybe the alcohol made her stupid enough to say that out loud...Im glad you guys had a good time! Did your daughter have fun? I would assume she did, and that she probably really enjoyed having both of you there. Maybe its a start of a new b-day tradition??? But seriously thats really awesome. So glad everything worked out for the better!

So glad it went well, and I agree that it is great for your daughter to see you coming together for her even though you guys didn't work out.
