DS has been to a few hated restaurants but only for lunch - I think he's too young to go for dinner (3.5) and when we all go out to those restaurants at night ( like for DH birthday) the booking was for. 7.30pm and we left at midnight because you want to take your time and enjoy it - definitely not appropriate. ( or fair) on kids to stay out that late which is why we don't invite them

No not all the time. I've been invited to special events
where the kids haven't been invited. I respect the peoples' wishes and it doesn't bother me coz it's good to get a day/night out.. The only time when I was still breast feeding my eldest when she was only a month old but they didn't mind.

So do people just not go to their work or their husband/partners work Christmas parties unless they are family friendly?

Just got an invite to a family event on a saturday evening - cocktail attire etc - that includes ds.
I've never been to a work Christmas party but my uni Christmas parties have been family friendly.

Going to a bday at a very posh establishment this Saturday. It's not explicitly been said "no kids" but you'd have to be mad to take them in my opinion. Full cocktail function, late evening drinks/finger food and dancing. We don't usually have access to babysitters for evening do's so for us it usually means one of us stays home. We just happen to have found someone on this occasion. Yippee!

TBH, I'm one of the mean people who wouldn't invite kids. That includes my own, who didn't attend my wedding and won't be attending DH's 30th. I just don't find adult events fun with kids present.
Something things are for adults to enjoy, something are for families to enjoy and something are for kids to enjoy. The idea of everything always being fused together does my head in.
So, I'd be ok with DD not being invited things. I've attended wedding without DH so he could look after DD in a pinch and I've not attended weddings because there was no one to look after DD. Not an issue.

I had a kid free wedding. I would have expected any newborn babies but I didn't want any little rug rats running around!!
Now I have children I would only expect them to be invited to immediate families weddings and I would get a baby sitter for the reception as I would want to relax not chase my kids around.
