Daughter's birthday vs step-sister's wedding. Who's the priority? 😩

Family dynamics can be complicated, especially when step-siblings are involved. In this case, a Reddit user is wondering if they are the a**hole for not changing their daughter's birthday party date to accommodate their step-sister's wedding. The user has no relationship with their step-sister and feels like their own daughter should be the priority. However, their mother and other family members have chosen to attend the wedding instead of the birthday party, leaving the user and their daughter feeling left out. This situation raises the question of what takes priority in family events and if step-siblings should be treated the same as biological siblings. Is it fair for the user's mother to prioritize her stepdaughter's wedding over her own grandchild's birthday party? Or should the user have been more flexible and changed the party date?
