Adults at a childrens birthday party

Alica | Jul 21, 2009 08:42 AM

I have a friend, he is a single father. We have been friends for awhile but we do not really get together that often. He has 2 young children, my husband and I do not have any children. This friend invites us to every birthday party every year for his kids. We went to a few, made the trip to Toys Are Us for a gift, etc.. We sat there and watched the kids and Barney and made small talk with people we do not know. We are so busy and time on the weekends is so precious to us. We also have a drive to get to this persons house. I have declined many of these invitations and have even said, "Well you know, we do not have kids..." Am I terrible? I don't think parents should invite adults to childrens parties, especially in our case.
