My friend's wedding is on my sons birthday which happens to fall on a Saturday. Normally our tradition is aside from any birthdya parties planned the actually birthday is a really big deal. Basically they are the boss for that day (within reason).. For this reason I do not want to go to my friends wedding, well I DO WANT to go but I think my son and our family tradition is more important. I do feel horrible for my friend but feel strongly about this so i'm not sure if i'm doing the right thing.
Also, a little side note. We are not as close as we usd to me. She was in my wedding because we were really close at the time. Since then (9 almost 10 years ago) we've grown apart but always kept in touch somewhat. Over the past almost year i've been having a hard time and i was calling her a lot. She rarely called me back and lately almost never calls me back.
What do you guys think? What should I do?

She might not have returned your calls as much b/c she was busy planning her wedding. Obviously if you feel strongly about it, then don't go. But consider this, yes your child's birthday is special & important. But delaying the festivities by 1 day won't really matter too much to him, Or moving them up a day (celebrate on a Fri.). But your friend's wedding will only happen once. (well hopefully only once)
