We take turns for ds since we are really just dropping him off or supervising from a distance as he is school age.
Dd is going to a lot of 1st bday parties atm and we have both gone to most of them since we know the parents as friends but I let him off for one yesterday since we had two in a day and he wanted to get some study done.

If DH isn't away for work then I always send him to the parties but for some reason every birthday party falls when he is away so I always have to take all 4 of the girls.

I try and do everything to avoid taking uninvited siblings to parties. So that means we share it. I tend to go to more than him. Neither go to our eldest's parties as they're not parties where parents stay anymore.

DH is much more likely to go than me as he is super sociable, loves kids and will never pass up an opportunity to eat cake!

DP always goes, and spends most of the time entertaining the kids

DH would definitely try to avoid parties. He is not social at all. I'm dragging him to one next weekend though - his first! He thinks our closest friends (who he also doesn't usually want to socialise with, but will tolerate) will be there as they were also invited but they will actually be away. Ssshh I'm not telling him though.
And yep, I get the same comment about the world revolving around me. Had it last night in fact right after I spent 3hrs trying to get both kids to stop screaming and go to bed. Not happy!
