How to deal with not getting invited to a party?

I know this sounds totally insane, but I have to ask. I am part of a mommy group of about 6 mommies. We always go to playdates, parties, etc. And now I found out I wasn't invited to a birthday party and I am feeling really bummed about it. This mommy is coming to a baby shower for me on Monday. Should I say something, or just let it go?

  • I would say something. Because you wont know for sure unless you are straight forward with her. Ask her why she didn't invite you. . . By the way if you live in MN let me know... I will invite you to our next get-together.

  • Don't let it ruin your day! There will be others and personally I always dreaded this kind of stuff for exactly this reason.. someone is bound to feel left out or hurt.. it's not worth it. Maybe talk about what a fun day you had that day and pretend you don't know anything about it... but thats just me...

  • If it truly was everyone else being invited and not you, then I would ask her if there was something I did to offend her or anything like that. It could be that your invitation was lost or misplaced, you never know. Then, I would just let it go. It's really not worth stressing over or being upset about.

  • There is nothing wrong with communicating and asking questions. Maybe she thought she send the invitations, maybe her feelings are hurt. The only way to know is to ask.

  • I'd mention it. Maybe there was a good reason you weren't invited? Maybe it wasn't because she doesn't like you or whatever you're thinking???

  • Okay, I finally figured out what happened. She is still in the process of sending out the e-vites and she didn't have my address. Thanks for the advice =)
