Hello all, I am new to posting on here, I have read a few threads though. with that being said, I have a question in regards to my sons 5th birthday at the end of this month. Do you celebrate your kids birthdays with your ex or not?
a bit of history for you to help with the question. We have been seperated now for about 8 months, working on the divorce.........we were together for almost 12 years, have 3 kids together and this will be the first birthday we are to celebrate, well the second........we did have our younger sons first birthday which was a horrible ordeal........lets say he decided not to come to that. Things got bad between us for a bit because of this, and alot of hurt feelings were let out, but we are doing good now, talking all the time and working well for the kids, we even get along.
alot of the invites will be to my family, and there was some bad things said between one of my sisters and my ex, so I know he is not comfortable around them.
My ex is seeing someone else, and she does have 2 kids as well, my son did say to me that he wants to invite her son to his birthday, ( they live together so the kids see each other every weekend, when mine are at thier dads house) so do I invite them all or do I let them do thier thing with him and we do ours here?
I hope that all makes sense.lol.
thanx for any help.
this is all so new to me, and alot of first times of many things.
