    My DH does. He helps out DD if need be (ie party at a park and needing supervision) and I gossip with the other mummies

    Our DD is only almost 3, once bub comes that might change depending on the party

    Really. If we have his family over for afternoon tea and cake he will come because it's his family. We have now had 3 parties with the kids friends and he came to 1 and that was only because he was driving past on the way back from delivering something.
    Actually he has been to some of the kids friends parties - a whole 2 of them.

    Yes. If he is around and it's a family invitation. Otherwise we take turns taking the kids. We've attended 14 birthday party (kids bdays not family) this year so far. Declined another 6-8 as we've been busy.

    Take turns. If he refuses call him out: what the f@rk makes him so special he doesn't have to do 50% of the work?
