FML - The follow-up

Today, after hours of organizing and spending around $300 for my three-year-old's birthday party, I realized I forgot to send out the invitations. FML

NiteShayd Say more :
Let me clarify, since its very cold outside, I decided to rent a play area for my son and his friends. I was to send the invitations in his bag when he went to preschool, but I evidently forgot. The $300 was for everything, the cake, gifts, play area rental, food and a clown. I ended up making some last minute calls and quite a few people showed up.

#108 what if op doesn't trust their baking talent a store bought cake can be nice. balloons can be expensive its usually $1 per plain balloon and between $1 and $20 for a shiny decorative one.. op may have chairs and a table but not enough for a medium-large party and lastly not all guests will be 3 years old if op invites family with children they can enjoy the bouncy house

You can't make your own cake for free. Ingredients cost money and time. What if OP was working and didn't have a day to spend making a nice cake? My son's party was yesterday and it took me a full day to make that cake. Even though I had ingredients, I still had to get jam and cream for the middle and extra fondant for the top. Normally I buy the cake and can see why now. So much easier and definitely worth the money given the time it takes to make a good one.

Just because a mother is spending more than you deem appropriate on her own child and with her own money, doesn't mean she's wrong or neglecting his college fund. Being well-off, enough so to have a birthday party and a college fund is not a crime. Also, parents do not owe children a college fund, I don't know where you come from but here, children pay for their own university while parents actually do pay for things in childhood, like birthday parties.

parents like to give their children everything they never had and they relive it through those moments. Maybe OP never had an extravagant birthday when she was younger and thought she'd do it for her child.

Lmao my comment was clearly not targeted towards the fact that she forgot the invites, it had to do with the fact that she spent $300. Learn to read and fully understand 128.

Hours of organizing? Hundreds of dollars? You do realize that there's a very slim chance that your child will remember this party at all, right? Some balloons and a sheet cake are all they'll really need.
