  • sorry i guess reading back on it it is kind of hard to understand, well i was told no one but 2 people from my sons dads family is coming to kids get together, and now there 14 people and i wasnt asked about any of them but the is his brother who im not happy about coming one bit because he left threatening messages on my phone towards me and my son when i was pregnant and now hes coming. i was wondering if i should just cancel the whole thing? its disappointing to me but i dont want drama and i was planning a small get together not over 20 people i had like maybe 8 people not including myself and kids and sons dad

  • yeah i know it really upsets me because i was looking forward to it but im not the one paying for the get-together my parents were being nice and said they would and now all of a sudden my sons dad tells me his brothers coming...his brother left treatment hes supposed to be in treatment for drugs right now..and my sons dad is probably going to be all mad at me for cancelling but he had no right into just go and invite tons of people when its not him paying. My sons dad has bad anger problems and its partially his fault why his brother did that..they were mad at me for telling my sons dads girlfriend that he was dating me while he was dating her so thats when they threatened me..

  • Sounds like it's way past time to put your foot down. Don't cancel but tell him that not everyone can come unless he ponies up some money. Plus his brother is not welcome to anything until he proves he can behave to your satisfaction. Also tell him if his brother shows up you will press trespassing charges on him. Then He throws a fit and threatens you tell him all invites are canceled and that it goes for anyone else who shows up. It's one thing to try to be Christ like it's another to be a door mat.

  • Cancel it.

  • I agree, cancel it. What is meant to be a happy intimate occasion sounds as if it is turning into a circus with tempers likely to fray and negative emotions on display.

  • i know see it wouldve been positive if certain people wouldnt be coming...and who i agreed to come which was his mom and him but not the rest of his family they havent wanted to see him since he was born and now they all say there coming on a day that is supposed to be happy for everyone..its just theres alot of bad feelings his brother really scared me back then
