Do you think I was being selfish?

On my kids birthday they can have what ever dinner they want, it is a family tradition-just family eats I have 5 in my family plus thier father which makes six. Then we have cake. Family tradition.

My neighbors were invited for cake I think my kids invited them because normally it is just family-**remind you we are having her birthday party at another location in November, and everyone is invited.
My x bought dinner for us, and their two aunts came over so Pizza for everyone. Do you think I was wrong for not inviting them for pizza? We just couldn't afford to feed 3 more people.

  • I don't think it's rude at all. I have been invited to people's houses for cake or dessert but not to dinner. Even if you could afford it and didn't want to invite them I still don't think it would be rude, family time is important.

  • no, its your family. You can have one with them later if the kids want.

  • My x is there father, and I didn't invite anyone. I didn't want to be rude and say no when she told her daughter you will not go down stairs for her birthday tomorrow... I don't think the mom knew it was just family.

  • If you can't afford it, you can't afford it. Invitations are optional, not obligatory. If they were invited for cake, then they should have shown up at cake time. If they arrive early, I think that is rude.
