    @temporary:  are you ready to cut ties too?  




    If not, I don’t think it really matters what you do, at this point.  If your mom doesn’t feel slighted and you want to attend the shower, attend the shower.  

    You shouldn’t pick sides between your mom and your brother/SIL.  Your mom has made her choice.  That doesn’t mean you have to follow suit.  AND it certainly means you shouldn’t try to play peacemaker at ANY time between your brother and your mom.

    ETA:  I just read the part of your post where you don’t want to deal with them anymore.  Then, simply just do that.  RSVP to the shower ‘no’ and go one with your life.

    I would support your mom and cut ties as well.  I am so sorry your family is going through this.  I guess I would ignore them if they try to contact you, or maybe write them a letter explaining why.

    Cut ties. If you feel like you no longer have a brother and don’t want to go to the baby shower, then don’t. You’re not obligated to go to it, but it will probably be the nail in the coffin for the relationship between you and your brother.
