'No Kids Allowed'

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

every year, BF's mom has a holiday party... she sent out an actual invitation (online) this year... on it, it says 'NO kids allowed'....

i have a 7 year old. should I ask if I can bring him? or just decline? Its the day before Christmas and quite honestly, I don't want to leave DS alone for a few hours, on Christmas Eve.... If he was allowed to go, I'd totally go... but I also dont want to be the odd one out that brings a kid.


ETA: since a lot asked about a babysitter.... around here, the price is $10/hour... I do NOT and CAN not spend $50 for a sitter, just to attend the party. DS is only getting some dollar store toy since I'm so strapped for cash.



ETA 2: i highly doubt it'll be a drinking party. BF's family is VERY- anti-drinking. like EXTREME anti-drinking.... ANYWAYS! i plan to decline... but i'm also partially afraid that BF will have to get the 'mom's disappointed' lecture and look. any time me and DS didnt attend, he'd get that (as well as me when i'd go over to visit)... but maybe she wont do that this time, since she's the one who stated no kids allowed?

 umm if NO kids are allowed and you DONT have a sitter you dont go he is 7 do not leave him alone so you can go to a party and dont ask the ppl who already said NO kids for an exception they said no kids it's their party they choose who goes the end

It said no kids allowed so you don't bring him. Can you find a babysitter? He won't die if you leave him with a sitter for a couple of hours!

Decline. I don't like going anywhere that my children aren't welcome to come.

Either decline or find a sitter. Don't ask if you can bring your child.
