17th Birthday Ideas

I'm turning 17 on June 27 and my mom decided it would be totally OK if she were to host a baby shower on the same day. A baby shower that she is not going to be here for.

I am sad and angry, but the baby shower is for someone I love a lot. I have no idea what to do. And if my mom is not going to be here for the baby shower that means she won't be here for my birthday. Do I talk to her about it or just leave it be?

You are 16 years old. Surely you have celebrated your birthday on an alternate day rather than the actual "birth" day before? If not, this is a good time to start. Talk to your mom about an alternate day for your birthday celebration. Since school is out, perhaps you can have a gathering of friends on a weekday. If it is your mom who is important to you on the birthday, just select a day that works for you both.

I can see why you'd be upset. Your mom didn't even talk with you about this or whether or not you thought it was okay. Certainly someone else could have hosted the baby shower, or she could have chosen a different day.

The important thing is that you talk to your mother about this and how it made you feel.
