Our family was planning a big combo birthday for my son brother and father, each turning 10,40,60. Been planning it for a couple of years now. We had to cancel it due to my brother and sister in law having other obligations (trip to europe and work). My mom and I just learned she has since planned a solo party for my brother and not included the others. This was supposed to be a milestone celebration in our family and she effectively cut us out. Everyone is very upset by the exclusion and she seems to not understand what she has done wrong. We had been waiting for years for this to happen, people from far away were anticipating coming for the event. We cancelled it because of them.Wanted to reschedule but she couldnt nail down when they would be avilable. I am beyond hurt and upset as is my mom. we feel she has robbed us of this chance to celebrate together. I need advice on what to do. Do we attend their party? Do we boycott in protest? They are so self absorbed I am not sure how to get through to them what has happened here and the level of damage her choice has caused. please help.
