Ok, so it's my husband but he's becoming more and more like you,...and I'm loving it.

Ok, so my husband has 3 sisters who all have kids and some are married now, have significant others, and the kids are now that makes over 25 birthdays a year.

Today, his oldest niece calls and leaves a message that we are invited to her baby's 1st birthday party next Saturday and asked us to come. She also apologized for calling last minute but as she said it on the message, she's her mother's kid.

My husband hears this and says.....ok so first she invites us to the party...and then says she's sorry for the late invite. In his family, a late invite is usually the day of ...and usually about 1/2 hour before the birthday party starts. Soooo, he figured she was only saying it was a late invite if she is expecting me to do the cake. (He's brilliant!!!)

So he asks if I want to go. I tell him I do if he does. (We do tend to avoid his family most of the time lately - long story having to do with a lot of family drama and 70 year old father "dating" a 30 year old chick in another state that only asks for him to wire her money - a sister that got a DUI and then had a wreck while driving on a suspended license - the niece with the baby having been divorced from the baby's father, then got back together and had this baby and now they're separated again - a niece that they just found out is pregnant - a niece that is 17 and has supposedly "found God"...which is fine but apparently taken to preaching to family and friends - and much more.) Also, when we invite his family here for Easter, they can't ever give us a definitive answer so we know how much food to buy. (Last year his sister showed with a half eaten super small potato casserole and his father showed with a $2.32 pie - I still want to know where the heck he was able to find one for that amount!!!!)

He says....ok we'll go if you want to...but we're doing what they do....and I'm going to be the one that calls back. So he gets on the phone and tells the niece we might come but we won't know till the last minute. And on the other end of the phone there is silence......and then....."oh, well I thought Kris would do the cake". So what does my husband say? Oh, well you should have called sooner if you wanted a cake. I can ask her if she can do it for you but she already had a wedding cake and a birthday cake for next Saturday. She might be able to do it but she will probably have to charge you an additional fee because it's a last minute order." BAHAHAHA....I almost choked listening to the conversation. She said.....oh, ok, well, ummm...oh, ok, well I guess I'll have to go BUY a cake. Stop by if you can. Bye.

Don't ya just love him? This makes up for every time I have thought to myself in the last 7 years....."and I decided to get married at age 41 after being single all my life.... why?????" Ok so it's not been that many times but it has happened on occasion hehehe

This is kind of funny but at the same time your hubby put his family into place. Maybe from now on they will start calling or sending you invites on time and be more polite. Good luck!

Family is just accident.... They don't mean to get on your nerves. They don't even mean to be your family, they just are. ~Marsha Norman

They just are, lol I have always kinda liked that quote! Pass go, collect $200 for your husband, nice to see a story like this one!

oh man, sounds like you found a whole 'nuther branch of my family!

One year, I invited my ONE sister and her hubby for Thanksgiving. She happened to mention that she might go to Debi's for the holiday. Next thing I knew, the word was out among all 5 siblings that "Thanksgiving is at Debi's house!" They all just invited themselves! icon_surprised.gif Took awhile, but eventually the message got thru that the family Thanksgving was NOT at Debi's house! (This is why RSVP'S don't work in my family! icon_rolleyes.gif
