  • call and see if he would like to go.just because your not together doesnt mean that he should miss out on thing in her life. if he doesnt want to go then go by yourself.

  • I agree. I think you should offer to go together and if he doesn't want to go by yourself.

  • You don't have to go TOGETHER, but you both should go, even if you meet there and sit together, or NOT sit together.

  • I would. The kid is more important and both parents should be able to go if they want. I think it shows the kid that even though you aren't together, you will both be there for them.
