  • You don't have to do everything together. both parties on same day is hard so its good to go seperate.You don't want his brother or your girlfriend to feel slighted so this is the best.

  • Family comes first. I would go to the brothers nieces party together. You can still give your girlfriends son a gift later.

  • We would probably try to make both parties. What time are they? If they are the same time, you could show up early to one and leave early and show up late to the other and leave a little later than you would have otherwise.

    We've done this before with weddings. :) We went to the ceremony with one and the reception with the other.

  • The niece's birthday should have priority. So even though I see nothing wrong with going to separate parties, it is potentially a tiny bit of a family disgruntlement if you go to a non-relative's party instead. Somebody may be irked. Is there any way that you could go to the niece's party and only part of the friend's party?

  • Depending on how close u are with the friend I'd try and make both. Or drop off a gift with your friend, stay for a few and then end your day with family.

  • I don't see anything wrong with that. Just make sure that the person who is hosting the party knows that the other wished they could have came, but they couldn't. I've done it before when my baby's father and I were together. We met up afterward and I called the party he attended and asked what had gone on and apologized for going to another one.
