My MIL's birthday is the day before my son's. Every year she has a big party for herself where everyone drinks and stays up until like 2 or 3 am. Today was that day. We are throwing a party for my son's 7th and I asked my husband at around 10:30 if we can go soon because of his party the next day. He gives me a look of disbelief and says we can't go soon because it's his mom's birthday.
Now I know she won't be heartbroken if we leave before midnight, as long as we stay for the cake. My husband did the same thing the previous year, he stayed after I went home and came home the day of our son's party about 1 1/2 hours before it started.
What I want to know is would you stay at a party late if you had to host a party by noon the next day? My husband swears I don't have to do anything at the party because he is cooking... that's it.
I am ready to say that next year we are not throwing a party for our son so we can stay the whole time at my MIL's party and I won't piss my husband off by wanting to leave early.
What would you decide to do?
Thanks for listening. I'm going a little out of my mind right now. (BTW, my husband stayed at her party.)

Wow, first off I think it sucks you have to go to a huge ass party for MIL every year, and until midnight at that.
IMO, I'd have DS's party the WEEKEND before or after MILs thing. It's too stressful on you to have to deal with both parties back to back.
