so i planned my 3 & 4 year old's double birthday party over 2 months ago in october. i invited my ex husband and his whole family because at the time things were going great, we were getting along, and he was going to pay $40 to help out with the costs. i also planned it on a certain day (today) because i knew his niece, my daughters' 5 year old cousin, would be in town also and i really wanted her to be there.
well its been a rocky road again since then, struggling to get along and everything. then he said he wasn't sure he'd have the money for the party. i eventually just stopped asking, at this point i just wanted my kids to have their dad at their party and my niece also.
they all came over for christmas and it was the first (and only) time they've seen their cousin since she's been in town for over 2 weeks. i keep trying to schedule playdates but they keep blowing me off so ive reached the point where i stopped asking. anyway when they came over, they said in front of all the kids that they would be here today for the party.
well today came and suddenly my ex got called into work and couldn't come. then, magically, sil also got called in an hour early and couldn't come. not that i believe either of them (i truly believe it was so they wouldn't have to fork over the forty bucks that i havent even been asking for anyway) but i asked ex MIL if she'd still be coming with their great grandma and cousin and she never got back to me, and then didn't even show up.
im just really hurt and angry that she blew off her own granddaughters' party. my ex said he'll come over tomorrow but im so pissed off that im thinking of being suddenly unavailable tomorrow, though i know that would be counterproductive for the children so ugh i just dont know! im tired of doing everything when its convenient for them and bending over backwards for them.
