I thank you in advance for any advice you can offer. My father who resides in Chicago and has yet to meet my child has purchased me a plane ticket to fly up for Easter. My son's first birthday is the day before Easter and I would like to throw a party for him. I have a lot friends and family who live in the area which would allow them to meet my son for the first time. Here is where the problem comes in. My parents divorced many years ago and my father never remained in touch with my cousins/his nephews. I would like to invite them as well as my god parents and friends that attended my baby shower. I do not think that he will be comfortable with this. I have a friend who offered her home which would be a great place to have a party and would keep everyone on neutral ground but I feel my father may be offended. I will only be in town for 1 week or I would consider 2 parties. Is it wrong of me to want to share in this day with everyone. Please Help. Thank you.
