If I was not invited to the wedding and now am invited to the baby shower, why?
Know the person for 9 years and have gone through 4 kids getting married. Known 2 of the kids and have been around for conversations of the wedding etc. Never invited.
1 of the 2 is pregnant with twins; to which I have, and have been invited to her baby shower.
Should I go? Haven't spoken with the mother in over 10 months and received the invitation.
Sounds like more presents to me!

Baby Shower Invite

Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately we do not always know the circumstances that surround invitations or non-invitations to important events. The only thing we can control is the way that we handle the situation.
Sometimes wedding guest lists are shortened for a reason. Money and size of venues are the most common cause of a smaller guest list. This makes is hard for people who want to share in the event, however they cannot.
I am sorry you haven't spoken to your friend in 10 months. I have to wonder if the baby shower isn't a way for her to reconnect with you. Sometimes it is easier to reconnect in a group of people than one-on-one. Celebrating the birth of her grandkids would be something to share with you. Attending the shower with this point of view would be a lot better than any other. It is worth a try if you would like to renew your friendship with her.
