Everyone backed out of going to my kid’s bday dinner
My kid turns 17 this week and we had planned a family dinner. Everyone was going to meet up at the restaurant of my kid’s choice.
I’ve been planning this since the middle of last month. I reminded everyone just two days ago and everyone was on board.
Today I call my mom to tell them when and where to meet us. She declines because the restaurant isn’t one she likes.
If she doesn’t go then my aunt and cousin also won’t be there. My other cousin told me just now she and her husband can’t go because she procrastinated on a project and now has to time crunch. (She works for herself and sets her own timeline. She knew for weeks the dinner was coming up and when her “deadline” was but continued to procrastinate anyways.)
My kid has Asperger’s; making friends and keeping them is very hard for her. So she has no friends to invite or anything.
I’m disappointed in my family. How could they just blow her off like this? So disappointed and so angry.
On top of just being an all around great kid, she has worked so hard this year. She deserves a day that’s all about her. A day where she is surrounded by her favorite people.
I am just so so angry
