Whenever the kids friends have a birthday party i get stuck taking the kids on my own. DH never wants to come. Even when he does he stands around looking sullen.
And me tells me i think the world revolves around ME. I havent done anything for myself in 6 years!!!

Does your DH/DP go to kids birthday parties?

He does when they are on a Sunday ( he works Saturday) granted DS is only 3 so we don't have that many parties yet!

My DP will come with me if he can/has the day off work. He is usually the one playing with the kids and running after them especially since I got pregnant and feel like I just don't want to move at all!

We have never been invited to one, but I'm pretty sure DH would go, as long as it's not a Sunday morning. That's golf time when pretty much only a close family member close to dying would make him stay home from golf!

He goes if it's his friend's kids party, which is the majority that DS1 has been invited to so far. We usually get invited as a family though. The one time it was just DS1 invited DF dropped us there and took DS2 to the park and out for lunch.

Family/close friends kids - yes unless he is working.
Friends of the kids from school/pre-school - only one of us goes...usually the one who has the most spare time that day. I've never seen both parents attend a kids birthday party in this kind of instance.

We alternate. I'm doing one today, he's doing one next Sunday.
We're reaching the dump and run age though so sometimes we get a lovely surprise and party duty ends up being two hours free time!

We seem to have a kids party nearly every weekend lately and DD is 2.5. If the parties are on when DH isn't working he will come. But if he is working I just take DD but in saying this, DD doesn't go to school so all the parties are people DH knows. It will probably change when she is school age and DH doesn't know the the other parents.
I have been on bed rest the last few weeks and DH has been taking DD to every party by himself.

If he's home and not away at work then he comes along with us. We don't go to a huge amount of kids parties though.

Nah, he isn't a fan of big groups of people...esp people he doesn't know. I am the social one so he stays home with the other kids and I go. If it's a family or close friends thing than we all go
