My husband and I run a business that requires one or both to be there during regular business hours. We have a school aged son and a 2 1/2 yr. old that my Mom sits with when I'm at work. My hubby's sister has recently become a judge and there will be a swearing in ceremony that the whole family has been invited to however, my mother-in-law decided that I would stay back (work). Of course I feel hurt and left out (all the other in-laws will attend with their spouses and some will bring their kids). Now... to top all of this off, my Mom (sitter) is currently out of town, in hospital, getting surgery. We don't really have another sitter so my mother-in-law took it upon herself to call a large daycare and make arrangements for my daughter to go there for the day.... She doesn't know these people/caregivers nor does she have too much experience with large groups of children. My husband and I had discussed enrolling her soon to take the burden off of my Mom. She will not be going and now I expect some kind of backlash from the woman... I'm sooooo frustrated and also I feel bad for my hubby as I know he would have loved to attend ....

Send your sister in law some flower's but I would not attend since my child is not allowed to go, if all other children are going. I would also not put my child in day care, where she does not know anyone, and my husband, so sorry, he would be working. If his family can't go, then he can't go either. That sound's so selfish, and I guess I am. Sorry.
