Why is it rude, offensive or wrong...

When your kid is not invited to something you are? I never understood why people get so offended when asked to leave their child behind. are you one of those people who "WOULD NEVER" go to a wedding, shower, or other party without your child? why?

If my kid can't come I usually don't go. Don't trust babysitters. At least not now. Maybe when they are a bit older.

I dont get offended, some things are for adults.
It's not like it's impossible for us to find a babysitter for the night though.

I like BBQs where family/kids are invited, and camping and tubing, and boating/beach, but I also like dates and functions, movies, parties, bar hopping, etc, with out my little brat. Like, last night, my mom and our closest friends, went on a Mother/Daughter date, NO KIDS! It was awesome.

I've invited a few friends out, but they always claim their babysitter bailed... Pfft.

I don't mind. I went to an adults only wedding last year and had a grand time drinking and dancing while DD was at grandma and papa's house.

I've never understood that! Some events just aren't intended or fun for children, and there's nothing wrong with stating that on an invitation.

Further to that, I'm not going to complain about having an excuse to get a babysitter for the night and enjoy time outside the house with the hubby!

I wouldn't not go to an event just because it's adults only. That's childish IMO. You need to have a life outside of your kids, and not be snobbish if someone wants to throw an adult function.

My kids do not have to do everything I do.
A break is always nice.
