  • dressing up is fun!! Why not let all the kids dress up as Disney Characters! Then EVERYONE gets to have a great dress-up party!

  • Just tell her. She probably thought it sounded like an awesome idea. Just point out to her why it isn't.

  • When it's his birthday he can dress as that.

  • I admit it's a cute idea, but, it's not his birthday party. You need to remind your sister-in-law that it's not her son't birthday party and that you "invited" him. He doesn't need to dress up for that.

  • I do think one PP'S advice was great- Why not have everyone dress their child up? I think the kids would have tons of fun and your Daughter is still going to get all of the attention with the gifts, cake, song and etc.

  • If it's that much of an issue for you, tell her. Chances are, she just thought "Aww, we could have a Mickey and Minnie", without giving any thought to it being an issue.

    But really - are you really concerned that people are going to see him in a Mickey costume, forget why they are there, and start ignoring your daughter?

  • Not his party he doesn't need to dress up, that just seems rude like she is trying to steal your thunder so to speak.

  • I would say no. You just need to tell her how you feel and explained you don't want to take attention away from her on her special day. Is it possible she might think it is a dress up party.
