  1. Hi Mamas out there! I'm new to this forum, so please handle with grace. So here goes: I'm a first time Mama and my lovely baby turns 1 in two months (so crazy fast)! Since this whole pandemic and quarantine has happened, we're not even sure if we will do a small celebration for her with the grandparents, uncles, aunties etc. That being said, if we do decide to do a small get together (and if it's safe) I'm kind of concerned about one sticky situation. See, my parents are divorced and they haven't spoken since my wedding day (~8 years ago). They are not on the best of terms and it was a bad split. Thankfully God has healed me from it, but my parents are still a work in progress. Well, when my baby was born, I had a conversation with my dad about being more open minded to coming around for special celebrations for the sake of his granddaughter, even if it meant my mom would be around. Suffice it to say, It didn't end well and he hasn't really been involved or engaged in my baby's life since her birth. But, quarantine has sort of weighed in on that too. Well, since my parents don't speak to each other, I'm not sure what to do about inviting my dad (& possibly his g/f) to my baby's celebration. My mom doesn't get along with her since she had a part in the divorce. My in-laws and mom get along just fine and so does the rest of my family and husband's family, but my dad is the black sheep who doesn't want to accommodate some of his comfortability for a few hours a year. I don't want to constantly create two separate celebrations for my baby just for the sake of my dad, but I also don't want to exclude him. I also wonder if I should invite him (or keep inviting him). I want my baby to have good memories on her birthdays and holidays, but I also don't want to force my dad to do something he doesn't want to do. I'm just not sure how to handle this dilemma. I would really appreciate input or advice from other Christian Moms that come from divorced parents. Thank you!🙏🏼
