I met this woman over the summer, she lives down the road from us, has two kids, I have three. Hers are around the same age as my oldest two. We started hanging out, inviting our kids to each other B days. I watch her kids, she watches mine. When she goes away I look after her house.


Yesterday it was her birthday and her husband planned a surprise bday party for her and I wasn't invited. Now she wants me to watch over her house. Part of me is hurt. I just want to say no. But maybe it's her husbands fault anyway. Who knows.

Has she mentioned anything about you not being at her party? If you don't want to do it, just say no.

Maybe her husband forgot to invite you. Maybe he thought that you would be unable to get a sitter. I dont let things like that bother me. Sorry you are hurt.

No. I don't think people see me as that type of person.

If it's hurting you ,tell her" If I had known about you B-day party I would have made you something/Got you a card" etc. and see if she is aware you were not invited...she may think that you didn't come for another reason .If her husband planned it ,he may have forgor to invite you or the invitation could have been lost in the mail....But If you care about her friendship you should try and find out what  happened .

Um it had nothing to do with her if it was a surprise party. Don't let this ruin your friendship.

If you are really bothered by it maybe you should reach out to her. Suggest a girl's night out/in maybe go to the movies or grab some coffee together. Sounds like you need to work on the grown up aspect of your friendship if you want to get invited to the next party.


If her husband would have invited you would you have gone to the party?
