This question starts with an assumption (based on our experience and the experiences of others we know). This assumption is that (1) you possibly agonized over whether or not to go to a baby-centered event (first birthday, bris, baby naming, baptism) and (2) you were not invited to a few of these aforementioned events. If these two cases didn’t apply to you, we’d love to hear from you as well.
Question Three: were people understanding if you didn’t attend a baby-centered event? Did they even know what you went through emotionally to attend events or did you keep that to yourself? At the same time, if you weren’t invited to baby-centered events (to spare your feelings), how did you feel?
