This does not make me rude or childish or self centered.
Each to their own.

Yeah I have to say this self centred thing is making me feel a bit prickly. For me, I definitely wouldn't have a hissy if I was invited to an adults only event. However, as I said, for me, those in my close circle know that DS and I are kind of a package deal, through reality and not choice on my part. So, when I said I would feel hurt, it's because that by knowing that, they are essentially making a choice for me not to go and share in their celebration.
I definitely respect their right to make those choices, and I don't *expect* them not to. If my circumstances were different then I wouldn't have any feelings about it at all. But they're not, unfortunately. I think self centred would be feeling hurt and demanding that I bring my DS, which I would never ever do.

I wouldn't expect them to be invited but it would mean I can't attend and would expect them to accept my reasoning.

I also agree that the host then has to accept it without issue if I can't get a sitter and therefore can't attend (in my experience, the vast majority do understand). I just think it's a but selfish to just expect them to accommodate your child. For most of these events, allowing children adds a lot of extra cost for an evening that they don't really get much out of.
We had kids at our wedding, and it was a great time, but I understand it's not for everyone, nor are some venues appropriate for children.

Each to their own but in no way would I "expect" my kid to get invited to a celebration.

Nope wouldn't bother me in the slightest. To be honest even if my kids were invited I wouldn't take them.... Unless the birthday was a kids party.
