    I agree with some of the others I think since you had previous plans you need to keep those. I'm not sure if your husband is going? If he is not going I would ask him if he could go to the party. If he can't, I would make sure the gift gets to the parents prior to the party. I'm sure they will understand. :):):)

    Just reread what I typed. I meant "go and have fun and do not worry about your grandson". Just talked to my daughter who is a grandmother and she said "go on trip" before I totally finished telling her your problem. I have missed a few of my great grandchildren's parties because their parents insist on the huge parties for their children with adults and children attending. I am not that fond of crowds when the child has noidea what is going on. Take care.

    I have 16 grandchildren with #17 on the way. Despite my best intentions it is physically and financially impossible to attend everyone's birthday every year. Although I love them dearly, Gramma and Grampa do have a life and we do make plans that sometimes conflict with plans our children and grandchildren make. (one of them was born on our anniversary!) We do the best we can to make sure they all get phone calls, cards, gifts/money, and we try to do something with each one at least once a year....hopefully the parents will understand.

    Send your regrets and plan a get together with grandson when you get back. Birthdays are a season, not a day ;-)
