(rant)So, today was DS's first birthday and party

and I invited a bunch of people, asked them to get back with me about whether or not they were coming, and they didn't call, didn't show. About 3/4 of the people didn't show. It was hot, and if I had known there wouldn't be many people I would have had the thing inside somewhere. I am most mad because not a single person from DH's family came, even though some of them said they would. Even my 11 months (major exageration, she is due July 27th) pregnant cousin came. I didn't care about the gifts, I just wanted people to shaw that they cared about DS.
DH's little brother shares a birthday with DS and I didn't get invited to the party they had for him, and I asked them if they were planning anything but was told "no". I am so angry with the fact that DS was born on this date. He wasn't even due until August 4th.
My grandma fell and broke her pelvis, so a lot of my family were at the hospital. The party went well, but I wish more people would have showed. Noah didn't care. He didn't really know what was going on.
The worst part about the whole thing, I asked my dad not to drink and he did anyway. And he, true to his drunken character, touched me inappropriately, again. I just ignored it and went on, like always. I don't know how to respond to that.

I am pi$$ed at my inlaws. They have Noah's gifts, and DH is taking him over there to open them. I don't want to go, but I am going to because I don't want them to think it is ok to give him cake or anything. He had his party, he's not having a second party. I guess I'll just act angry the whole time. It's not really my style, but I am mad.

I don't know what else to say.

Awww... that sucks about the party, mama! That totally sucks for DH's family to bail on you like that.

I'm not sure where it was before (it's listing it in the Parenting forum now), but maybe someone thought it would be better in here? Dunno. Sorry!

No, I put it in OT, I don't think that what I had to say in my post had much to do with parenting. I think a mod saw the title, but didn't read the post.
