My BFF scheduled her baby shower on my son's 1st birthday party. She was in the room when I delivered him. Of all dates, I thought for sure she would recall his birthday. Apparently she didn't. I received her invite to her baby shower this week, scheduled on the same day as my son's birthday party (In September). My son is her godson. When I said something she remarked that she was taking childbirth classes the two days before her shower, and her husbands has off that weekend, and that's why they chose the date. Problem is that when I mentioned the scheduling conflict, she had the nerve to ask me if I would change the date/time of my son's birthday party to accomadate her shower. What boiled my blood was that she was unwilling to change the date or time of her shower at all. Pretty much told me it was set in stone and if I wanted her there I would have to change my son's birthday party to a different time, or select a different day. Is it me or does this seem rude? I can't change when my son's birthday is (he was lucky enough to manage to not be like his Mama who shares her birthday with Thanksgiving every 7 years) and by a stroke of luck it fell on a weekend day when all of my out of state family will be in town. Furthermore, she doesn't see that asking me to change my son's birthday party was rude and self-centered. Am I the only one who thinks her logic is ridiculous?
