okay so i dont get along with my inlaws because of how they let hubbys niece and nephew treat my kids. so anyways my daughter just turned 2 and hubby had agreed (the only thing i asked of him so that i would stay since we were about to divorce) that we would wait to have her party til we got a house(end of the month).well his family decided they dont want to be around me since i dont want to be around them and said they wont go to the party.so hubby is taking her to be with them and i get no party with my daughter

thats why im laying here awake and 430am and have been getting no sleep for the past few days.it upsets me so bad that i dont get to be with my daughter for her party and hubby just doesnt care. what can i say to make him realize how wrong that is?!

Hugs! I would just throw another party of your own and try not to worry about it. I agree that it's petty for them to act that way, and it's definately in your daughter's best interest for you all to get along and do things together.

I think it's very selfish of your DH to even want to have a party for the daughter that you share without you. Each celebration is special and it's important for you to be there. Even though you do not like your inlaws, I would try to work something out, so you can all be together. Marriage is all about give and take and it's time that your DH realizes that. No one can have there way all the time and he can't allow his family to think they are right all the time. I would make your marriage a #1 priority, an unhappy mom and dad lead to an unhappy family.
