My Dilemma with My Mom

My mom lives in Florida and she is coming up at the end of June to celebrate my son's graduation. The day after she arrives, we have a party to go to for another friend whose son is graduating. I'm not sure what to do with my mom. Should I ask my friend if I can bring her along to the party even though my mom won't know anyone there or should I not go to the party which I really hate doing since my friend is going out of her way to come to my party. Also, I have a third option of asking my cousin if my mom can spend the day with her, but I don't know if that's really the right thing to do either. Please help with any advice. Thanks!

Just explain to your mom about the situation I am sure she will understand or maybe she wants to go with you.Hope things work out for you and congrates to you son.

Thanks. It's a happy occasion and I don't want to add any tension to the situation so I just want to do the right thing. I guess I'll have to give it some thought.

I would ask to bring your mom with you. That would be nice. ALthough it might be a good idea to ask your mom what she thinks of the situation. She may just want to spend some time alone, or she might just want to spend that time with your cousin. I am sure either way things will work out. I would definitely commit to the party since she is coming to yours. Ultimately ask your mom what she feels. Then make your decision from there.

I would explain to your mom that you have this party to go to and why. I would talk with your cousin and see if she wanted to spend some time with your mom. I also think if you go to this party knowing your mom is there maybe only spend a couple of hours there. I would hope your friend would understand that you mom just got in to town and that while maybe you can't stay all day and night you made time and a special effort to be there for a while.

I would ask if you can bring her, even if she knows just you, she can always talk to people. When I go to parties that I know only one person, I just talk to people I don't know :)

You never know your mom maybe worn out. I would just ask her what she wants to do. You can telll her that you will ask your friend if you can bring her along. Or maybe she will just want to settle in and get unpacked. Rest up for the REAL PARTY. You know your Mom better than I do. Is she a light hearted go with the flow kind of person? If so I bet she will be like , "oh I will be fine just go honey have fun." Best of luck enjoy your mom and this fun time with your family!
