    Default SPIN OFF - Do you expect your children to be invited to special events?

    Weddings, engagement parties, birthdays, etc.

    Do you expect your children to be invited?
    Are you upset if they aren't?
    Would you refuse an invitation if your children could not attend?

    Hmmm I think for me it depends on the event and the age of the child/ren.
    Weddings I'm ok with not bringing a child. But everything else I would expect to be invited as a family.

    I would also be pretty peeved if someone said I couldn't bring a young baby (like 0-6months) to anything.

    Same, we have a wedding in nz soon and not 100% sure if DD will be invited.
    Well still go if she's not, just use a sitter

    Yes yes yes. Special events are about family imo. So excluding kids defeats the purpose. If you want 'adult' time go down to a club and get p*ssed.

    No. Honestly really special events happen for us infrequently enough that I take the opportunity to have a few too many champers, a bl**dy good dance and a kebab on the way home while nana babysits.

    When we get married, it will be very child focused as we have a young family but I don't expect others to do the same.

    No I don't get offended, usually if I can get my parents or in-laws to babysit I don't take DD even if she is invited, I prefer a night to myself. If she wasn't invited and I couldn't get anyone to watch her then yes I would decline an invite but I wouldn't be bitter about it.

    I would be offended though if it was a close relative or friend and they had invited a lot of other children of the same age and not mine. That's a bit of a slap in the face. In that case though, if it was really bugging me, I would probably just decline the invite and let it go, life is too short to hold a grudge over a social engagement.

    Friends, no. Immediate family, absolutely and they know it.

    In my particular circle yes to all because both mine and DH's family are very family centered and include everyone from big to small (obviously excluding things like hens nights). Kids are even invited to my work c'mas party since we all work with children its pretty inclusive. I would probably decline if DD couldn't go, not out of being upset (though if it was family I would be upset) but more because she is such a mummy's girl at night and I wouldn't want to put that stress on her and anyone I get to babysit her.

    I don't expect my children to be invited to everything, but sometimes if I'm invited to some place and kids can't come I sometimes can't go (no sitter still bf ect ) doesn't really bother me that's life.
