Sierra wanted to have a Princess Tea Party for her birthday party. She wanted to invite all the girls in her class, a few neighbors, and her cousins. I planned on 12 girls being there (including my girls.) I spent a lot of time preparing things that each girl would take home at the end of the party
So...to start out the party two of the girls came early. Not just a few minutes early, but 25 minutes early! And one of the girls was a sister, so not technically invited. Who does that? Another girl came and didn't realize it was a birthday party. I guess I didn't specifically say that it was a birthday party on the invitation so that was my fault. But wouldn't you bring one just in case it wasn't just a party just for the fun of it? Then another girl came with her sister. There were a lot of girls. It was really loud in my small house.
For the rest of the party Reanne pretty much was in tears. I had to send her out of the house because it got so bad. She came back in time to see Sierra open her presents. With every present she cried harder. It was awful. Then Grant started crying. I was trying really hard to not cry myself.
By the time the party was over I had a huge headache and I was mad at most of my kids. I swear I am going to give up trying to do fun things for my kids. I am letting everyone know now that next year I am not holding any friend parties.
