This what you get when you think you are entitled

My son's first birthday is Sunday and we are having his birthday party on Saturday with friends and family. Well MIL decided that she didn't want to attend because of my parents attending. That's fine she doesn't have to attend. No biggie. Well about an hour ago she shows up wanting to take my son to dinner. I told her not tonight because I have a lot to do with my other kids between dance and homework and we will have dinner with her another night. She replied well you and your daughters are not invited. This is just a dinner with my side of the family to celebrate his birthday.I told her absolutely not. Now I'm getting a bunch of texts bitching me out because I'm keeping her grandson from her. Uhh No. I'm not. She has seen him a grand total of 5 times in his entire life and never shows any interest in him unless its to make herself look good. If she wants to be a part of the family then that includes everyone Not his and hers. Besides no one is celebrating his first birthday before me and our nuclear family does. I cannot believe the show of entitlement from her

You don't trust her with him is what it sounds like.

He doesn't really know her plus I believe that baby firsts belong to the parents

So wait...a woman who has probably never watched your 1YO wants to take him to a restaurant, by herself? Talk about setting yourself up for dirty looks and comments. She must not be all there. I wouldn't trust a kid alone with her unless they could recite my address and phone number in their sleep.

It seems like it would be a pretty sweet deal then. Let her have him and give yourself a break while running around your older kids.

Oh she wouldn't be by herself. She had a whole party planned with guests,decorations and birthday cake. I just find it completely offensive for her to plan a birthday party for someone else's child and not even invite the child's parents or sibilings. especially a milestone birthday like the first birthday

Some grandma's think they have all the say. Smh, stand your ground.

And the texts bashing you for saying no, who does she think you are? The mother?

She sounds a tad bit trashy to be honest.

Ya rude to plan a separate party and his siblings and parents are not invited.

I would tell her if she wants to celebrate his birthday she is welcome to come to his party that we are throwing just like the rest of his family.
