Grandmother’s Controversial Plan: She Wants to Celebrate Her 50th Birthday on Her Granddaughter’s 1st Birthday – Is She Being Selfish?

The mother of an almost one-year-old girl recently discovered that her own mother was planning to throw her 50th birthday party on the exact same day as her daughter’s first birthday. Here’s what she had to say.

“I am 25 and had my daughter on April 15th of last year. I was super excited that her first birthday fell on a Saturday so I could have her party on her actual birthday. My whole family is aware that I’ve been planning for her party to be on the 15th,” she began.

But her mom also planned one

However, her 49-year-old mother, whose 50th birthday is on April 12th, announced that she would also be hosting her own birthday party on the 15th.

The woman asked why

The woman asked her mother why she couldn’t hold her party on another weekend, but her mother explained that her niece’s 3rd birthday party was the weekend before, and she will be busy the weekend after.

Additionally, the older woman claimed that having the party on Friday was inconvenient for her and that having it two weeks after the official date would be too late.

The woman thought, “Her party will be starting at six, which really means she will be busy from 2 pm going forward, as she has to set up, get the party ready, etc.”

The woman doesn’t want her daughter’s party to be too early in the day, as it would be inconvenient for those family members who work late and need to sleep in, including herself, her father, and her sister. 

The woman wanted it to be special

The woman added, “I wanted to get sweets and different foods for my daughter’s party and be able to spend the day with her and my family and really focus on her because it’s her first birthday, and I know she won’t remember, but I will.”

She was very excited

“I bought her party decorations months in advance, have had the theme picked out, and have honestly been so excited about it for months.” She had been especially looking forward to throwing a big party for her one-year-old because she had never had big parties when she was young.

To make matters worse for the young mom, her mother’s party would be held at a bar, and the older woman asked her daughter to find a babysitter for the evening of her granddaughter’s actual birthday.

The woman expressed her frustration to her mother about the overlapping parties and called it a thoughtless decision. Her mother became very angry and accused her of being unreasonable.

The woman wanted to spend the day with her daughter and spoil her, but said, “I feel like everyone is going to be rushed at her party because they have to get ready for my mom’s, and my mom doesn’t live super close, plus the bar is a bit of a drive from where the rest of us live.”

She decided to seek the opinion of others

One internet user said, “Someone is wrong here, and that’s the Grandma. It’s her granddaughter’s first birthday, which she has known was planned forever. She didn’t have her party the previous weekend because it was her other granddaughter’s third birthday.”

Another user disagreed, “Grandma needs it on the weekend as there will be lots of grownups there who work during the week. They need the next day off to recover. Adults like to drink. But a party date doesn’t matter to a 1-year-old.”
