The original post sounds as though it was written when you were upset and had a “it’s my way or the highway” attitude.  Your replies to posts all such much more calm.  That being said–it’s ok to know what you want and be firm about it.  There are many things I told my mom what I chose instead of asking her opinion.  But there are also a few things I asked her opinion on so she would feel included.  If it helps give her a couple options that you like so whatever she picks you are ok with.   Especially if you mom is helping foot the bill at all!  If she has an attitude about it and is rude about your decisions then have an adult conversation with her about how her words upset you.

As for the kids–there has to be a cheaper babysitter then $600!  Ask local high school kids to do it.  Or just don’t invite any kids at all

And the RSVP thing–that attitude is just bitchy.  If you said that to me then I wouldn’t even want to go because it sounds like you don’t care if I am there or not.  Remember–it’s not all about money, it’s about wanting your friends and family to celebrate with you.  So find out if they are coming in a more polite way and then you will know your head count and won’t need to spend extra money or have unexpected guests

As long as you don’t talk like that to THEM, good on ya. Because for the most part I feel the same way. But I’d never shut them down the way your speaking (typing) here.

this was one of the more entertaining reads.  good luck with everything OP!  and i agree with the PP who said you can find a cheaper babysitter!  unless you and/or Fiance want those kids your wedding, then its a different issue.

Maybe try craigslist for a cheaper babysitter?

Also, check you local YMCA or YWCA for babysitters…they usually offer certification programs.  I would not however, use Craigslist.  I like Craigslist, but if I found out that’s where you got your babysitter, my kids (if I had any) would not be staying with that person.

I know you were upset when you wrote that, but there are some things I wanted to say, “RIGHT ON GIRL!” like the RSVP situation, especially because you’re on a military base.  I just want to look at people and say, you realize you’ll have no seat and nothing to eat right?

@karatechick27: You are probably right about craigslist… nix that suggestion.
