I am a great-aunt to multiple kids. There is a birthday party every couple of months for one of them, and they each have a party every year. We did not have this growing up. Contributing food and wine and a present and counting gas, it all usually comes to about $50. I don’t have kids, but when I baby-sit for all, I do not charge. Do I have to go to all of these events?
