Grandma disappointed after son and daughter-in-law hide baby's birthdate 😔

The birth of a baby is a joyous event for the family, but not everyone is on the same page when it comes to celebrating. A grandma excited to host a welcoming party for her grandson was disappointed when her daughter-in-law refused the offer. However, the situation took a turn for the worse when the grandma discovered that her son and daughter-in-law had kept their child's birthdate a secret for two weeks. The grandma was understandably upset that she could not properly celebrate her grandson's birth and invited family members, who were also disappointed. The son's reason for keeping the birthdate a secret was due to feeling uncomfortable with his mother's persistent requests for a party. The situation has caused a rift in the family, with some members seeing the son's actions as justified and others siding with the grandma. Regardless of the differing opinions, it's clear that communication and compromise are necessary to repair the relationship between the family members involved.
