I feel so left out. Is it because I am the groom's mother? Fiance said she would keep me in the loop and I can help. However I work weekends, and the rest of the world works week days. And I DO understand she would go with her mother. But I didn't even know how many people are invited and I didn't even know what time it was at. They chose Friday, August 12th. They are trying to pay for it on their own and Friday's are much less expensive. Seems like they have everything but the flowers taken care of. We went to dinner last night with her parents. I am not jealous just felt sad that I didn't know a lot of the wedding planning. The maid of honor asked me to do a Bridal shower with her. I don't know much about that and have no family in town. I work out of town so co-workers are out. I have neighbors that knew easy child since he was a little boy, but they are having a small wedding and I can't invite all the neighbors. And I don't think you can invite people to the shower that are not invited to the wedding. Right????? Any idea's for center peices for the wedding? 13 tables. Any idea's for the Bridal Shower? I've never been to one and I certainly never hosted one. Any Idea's for me? So, I asked my future daughter in law to come over this morning so I can run some things by her regarding the shower. easy child and her came over and we talked about things for a while. THEN......easy child said "difficult child...I asked you to be here because I wanted to tell you....you are going to be an UNCLE". OMG....I am going to join the Grandma club!!!! I am so excited and want to tell everyone. But easy child said I have to wait three months to make sure everything goes well. But.....I am so excited.
