I've been doing this for years for ds's two cousins. I've seen the same people there for 10 years - no one speaks to me unles I speak to them first - then they usually just grunt a reply if at all. I hate, hate, hate going but I do it anyway because DS wants to see his cousins. Best thing to do is, go, stay for a while, smile lots and do lots of deep breathing.

(Also, while you are there remember that they are all dickheads and you are the only normal person there!!!)

Poor you. How much does DD want to go? If she is really looking forwards to it then I suppose you have to, but if not that bothered I would make an excuse and not go tbh, or see if you can drop her off and pick her up later

I wouldn't go.

It won't kill your dd to miss this one party, and no way would I go somewhere that I really feel unwanted and uncomfortable.

It's only a birthday party, not as if your dd is missing out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Retard, what a weird choice of words?
Anyway, why dont you take your dd along and sit in a corner reading a book. Thats what I would do.

I have a feeling that there is a seriously nasty thingamijiggy going about, strikes just as you are getting ready... dizziness and general nausea.

A lie down, watching a DVD with your DD is the only known treatment.

Don't put yourself through it... what's the worst that could happen... they don't speak to you??

I wouldn't go and I wouldn't be bothered about my DC not getting to know people who behaved like that. No brainer really.

Ah thank you for you replies, I went,(dh was working away, grrr) and did as 'notimetotidy' said, smiled and breathed deeply.....only after the party i got home and went on find the sister of the birthday boy had called me a bitch...only for thanking another girl for looking after my 18 month old dd at the party..."Urgghh???"..yes anyway it was a bloody nightmare!...thanks everyone....
