Hmm… it sounds like she’d be pretty hurt if she wasn’t invited. If you can swing it I would invite her and her husband but leave the child off the list. If she asks if she can bring her son I’d explain that it adult-only with the exception of family children. She may decide not to come if she has to leave the little one at home.

I completely agree with PP.  Also, were you invited to her wedding?  If so, that might be an indication of how close she thinks you are.  Which might mean hurt feelings if she’s not invited to yours.  Either way, I would imagine she would be upset if she wasn’t invited to your wedding…

I would invite her but with the “no kid” stipulation. If you aren’t that close anymore and she can’t bring her son, they might decide not to come and then you’re off the hook.

Sounds like you should invite her. And call to reconnect and explain that it’s adults only with the exception of family kids. I think you’ll feel a lot better about it after you talk to her again.

I think it’s fine to invite her without her son.  And I agree that you should still invite her.  When friends form college and high school get on with their lives and get jobs, and move away, it’s easy to lose touch a little.  It just is part of life.  But you know, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t still close.  You said, if you needed her, she’d be there.  I think that really says it all.
