'No Kids Allowed'
by Anonymous

every year, BF's mom has a holiday party... she sent out an actual invitation (online) this year... on it, it says 'NO kids allowed'....

i have a 7 year old. should I ask if I can bring him? or just decline? Its the day before Christmas and quite honestly, I don't want to leave DS alone for a few hours, on Christmas Eve.... If he was allowed to go, I'd totally go... but I also dont want to be the odd one out that brings a kid.


ETA: since a lot asked about a babysitter.... around here, the price is $10/hour... I do NOT and CAN not spend $50 for a sitter, just to attend the party. DS is only getting some dollar store toy since I'm so strapped for cash.



ETA 2: i highly doubt it'll be a drinking party. BF's family is VERY- anti-drinking. like EXTREME anti-drinking.... ANYWAYS! i plan to decline... but i'm also partially afraid that BF will have to get the 'mom's disappointed' lecture and look. any time me and DS didnt attend, he'd get that (as well as me when i'd go over to visit)... but maybe she wont do that this time, since she's the one who stated no kids allowed?

     I don't normally go to parties that don't allow kids so I probably would not go. Especially on Christmas eve. That's the time you should be hanging out with your kids!

    Decline. If the invite already says no kids, why put yourself and her in the awkward position of asking and being told no?

    I'd get a babysitter and still go.

    I'd decline.  The invite says no kids.  Just let them know you don't have child care, so you regret it but have to decline.

    I'd ask your bf to talk to her & see if she'll make an exception, otherwise just stay home. Does she have other grandkids that are being excluded?
