Today, I hosted my 6-year-old daughter's birthday party. After inviting 15 kids from her class, making a huge 2-flavor character cake, and cutting pool noodles for light sabers, only 1 kid showed up. FML

mvjunkie tells us more.

hey guys OP again so like I said in my first comment I really wasn't social during that time. when my husband deploys I don't stay in the town we are stationed, there's no point in me staying alone with no one and two kids if I can move closer to family and at the very least have someone around for emergencies. so that's probably a big reason no one came. but bright side of life she still had fun, she had a second party with family and on her actual birthday her and I went out caught a movie and other stuff so she's not scared by any means. Either way i really appreciate all of the support and kind words, yall rock!

Be a parent then, if she's lonely you go out there and party with her yourself or better yet invite some family, have a fake Star Wars fight with her and if you can't finish that cake save it and let her bring a little of it to school for a lunch treat, because if you think you feel shitty for preparing that imagine how she feels that practically no one showed up. Perhaps a little time together celebrating could cheer both of you up

oh man, where's the kids FML for real :'(

Because all those other 6 year olds have Facebook? She probably sent her daughter to school with the invitations. Not everyone relies on Facebook to get things done.

Yeah my bad on that one lol

The kids don't have Facebook but their parents do (Most likely)

Actually, more people responded to my son's 2nd birthday invite on Facebook than the actual birthday invites I mailed out. ...people these days..

I'm sure she did ?

The exact same thing happened to me, no one showed up for my party but my mum made it amazing. She let me eat cake for breakfast and we went to the beach and just had a perfect day. Now when I look back I see how much fun I had with my mum rather than me being stood up. Make sure your daughter knows you love her. It's make or break time.

I actually had that happen a couple years ago. I planned to hang out with friends for my birthday, and at the last minute everyone cancelled. I ended up spending time with my family instead, and one of my friends who lived out of town came by the next day and hung out with me. It ended up being one of my best birthdays ever.

No, it was a martians daughter she was just trying to celebrate with her.

OP said only one kid showed up. I think what he's asking is if the one kid was OP's daughter.

If you invited me I would have come, who doesn't love birthday cake!?

For future parties, always add a RSVP to the end with your cell phone number, that way the parents will hopefully contact you if their kid will attend, so you can at least have a heads up, instead of waiting around wondering why they didn't show up. It could also be something as simple as if you sent the invitations with the kids, they might not have given it to their parents, or given it too late. Even if they have a folder to send things home in, some parents never check it.

Maybe they did add an RSVP with their number - you don't know.

Make sure you spend time with her and comfort her because that happened to me once, I invited my whole class and no one came I was so sad and left wondering why. when I went to school the next day I asked my classmates why they couldn't come and half of them gave a generic answer while the other half made fun by saying they don't attend four eye losser parties. I stopped having parties after that. So long story short is kids can be jerks so maybe sure she feels loved
