You’re having a birthday party at your house, and you’ve invited all of your friends to come. One of your long-time girlfriends calls you a few days before the party to let you know that she’s actually coming. You’re completely shocked because ever since she got married and had a baby, you hardly ever see her, especially at social gatherings.
She asks you if it’s okay to bring her eight-month-old son to the occasion. You don’t want to flat out say no, but you try to urge her not to bring him. You explain that there will be drinking, loud music, and no other children there. It seems like she agrees that it's not going to be a very kid-friendly environment, until she calls you a day later and says that she’s going to bring him anyway because her husband will be out of town and she doesn’t have a sitter. You feel badly, but you just don’t want her baby at your birthday, so how do you handle this?
