  • Are you talking kid parties? My DD hasn't reached that point in her life yet, where she is going to kid parties, but to be honest I don't want to go to them. I'll be happy dropping my DD off and picking her up after the party (if okay). If parents must stay, I will go alone, not drag DH there too.

    As for family parties, we go to all of those together.

  • Yes, he's been to all of them except one and that is because he stayed home with our 2 little ones.

  • Yep... Me & DH barely go anywhere without each other.. We like being together- as a family & a couple.
    I think in the last 4yrs he went to a friends at work lil' girls bday party without me cuz i was not feeling good. He only stayed for a lil' bit to give present & chat a bit..

    Also our friends all had co-ed babyshowers... and we went together for that too..

  • I don't even go to birthday parties. If a parent is required to stay then my kids don't go. I have other things to do than sit around a birthday party for some kid I don't know. I only go to parties for my friends' kids and my husband doesn't go since he's not friends with them. My kids have never been to a party where an adult had to stay with them. We always drop them off and pick them up later.
