Is it just me or am I being a B ?
Ok so I have been running around like crazy the last few weeks and this week is NUTS ! My oldest son , my baby , the boy I had at 16 is graduating ! A HUGE deal for me , I guess any parent. Its special obviously to us, his family . Its kind of an even "bigger" accomplishment for my son because he's dyslexic and struggled w/ school his whole life, even bigger is he's going to college on to throw discus and that he WANTS to go to college after the difficulties he's had.
So that being said obviously we are proud of him .... Obviously I want my friends and family to celebrate w/ us. We are having a BIG party , like over 70 people will be here ! Maybe I am just extra stressed cause family is coming into town some I want to see some , uh not so much .
But here is the deal, I have some long time friends who have been w/ me since I had my son at 16, saw his sperm donor leave me and all that went w/ that who are acting like this is a every weekend occasion ..... By that I mean , one has plans to go somewhere already so " Sorry we cant make it " some others are not going to the ceremony but coming to the party WELL Of course you will the party , there will be food and beer ! Some have legitimate plans are already going out of town etc, which i totally understand.
I just think if this were my friends kids I would change my plans no matter what to see their children graduate . Maybe I need to re think how much effort I put into my friendships !
So just curious .. am I being over sensitive or am I being a bitch or a little of both !
