She Wouldn’t Include Her Niece’s Name on Her Daughter’s Birthday Cake Even Though She Knew the Family Were Struggling Financially – Was She Wrong?

A mother made her sister-in-law very angry because she didn’t put her niece’s name on her own daughter’s special birthday cake, even though she knows the other family is going through financial difficulties. This is what the 31-year-old woman had to say about it.

The woman’s daughter and niece were born only ten days apart and are both now 8 years old. Because of this, her 29-year-old sister-in-law has always insisted on having a joint birthday party for them.

When the girls were between 1 and 4 years old, they used to have birthday parties together. However, as time passed, the woman and her husband realized that having shared parties was not a good arrangement.

The mother explained, “We realized that we were always the ones to foot the billfor the food, decorations, and the venue. Also, the girls are complete opposites; my daughter has always been more of a tomboy, while my niece is super girly.”

When they informed her sister-in-law and her brother that they had decided to stop the shared birthday parties, they were really upset and started a huge fight. 

“They said we could afford the birthday party, so it makes sense that we pay for it since we are family,” the woman said.

The couple stuck with their decision, and since then, the two girls have had separate birthdays. 

Her sister-in-law and brother adjusted to the new plan, and they were all getting along fine until her daughter’s 8th birthday.

This time, the woman’s daughter requested a Formula 1-themed birthday party because she loves watching car racing with her dad.

The weekend before the birthday party, both families had a family dinner at the woman’s parents’ house. 

While they were talking, her parents asked their granddaughters if they were excited about their upcoming birthdays and if they were having parties.

The woman’s daughter told her grandparents about her party, while her sister-in-law spoke on her niece’s behalf. 

Her sister-in-law told them they were not going to throw a party for their daughter because they couldn’t afford it. The conversation ended there, and they carried on with the dinner.

Everyone in the family was invited, as usual, and they were all having a great time until it was time to cut the cake.

When the mother went to the kitchen to get the cake, her mom, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, and a few other family friends were having a conversation.

The drama started when her sister-in-law saw the cake; she looked confused and said, “Is this the girls’ birthday cake?” The woman replied, “What do you mean by ‘the girls’? The cake is for my daughter.’’

Her sister-in-law said she thought since she mentioned that things were tight this year, the woman would automatically include her niece’s name on the cake.’’

The woman explained that she understood her brother’s family’s situation, but they hadn’t even discussed the cake with her.

Her sister-in-law replied, “Well, I thought it would be common sense. Now my daughter isn’t going to have any kind of celebration for her birthday this year because you and your husband are so selfish.”

She Stormed Out

The sister-in-law then stormed out of the kitchen, made a huge scene at the party, and left with her husband and daughter. 

Since then, she has been trying to make the woman and her husband feel guilty that her niece won’t celebrate her birthday and has been calling them all kinds of names.

The woman doesn’t think it’s her fault, but she does feel bad for her niece and wonders if she was wrong for not including her in the celebration since her parents couldn’t afford it.

Not wanting to be selfish, the woman asked for advice on the situation and whether or not she should have included her without even being asked.

People Responded

One user posted, “It’s simply not your job to make sure your niece has a party; it’s up to her parents. If things are tight, then they need to get creative.”

Another user wrote, “You didn’t do anything wrong. How much money can you possibly invest in an 8-year-old’s birthday party? Most of my kids’ birthdays have been in the park on a very low budget. Using a cool location and having a VIP experience is quite optional.”
