Family Conflict

Getting ready for another bday party! This year there is conflict between several members of my family and my husband's family. Is it ok to acknowledge their childness and have seperate parties or do one and never talk to anyone who ruins her birthday?

I have this problem with everything I try to do. My husband family wants to do everything their way and doesn't really want to share the spotlight. But when it comes to my daughter I don't want her to learn that. I want her to love both sides of her family. so when she turns 1 we are just going to have one party. If they don't like it o well. But if they want to see their grand-daughter they will learn to play nice. The day is about the kid, not their egos.

lol...umm I just had a wedding with this problem. I pretty much hoped and prayed that nothing would go wrong. Just let them know hey you can be there or you can not be a part of it. But the invitation is there. Put the ball in their court. If they want to be a part of it, they will act civil.
