First birthday parties … such a joyous and momentous occasion, celebrating the first year of any little person’s life. Great company, cake, maybe some party games to complete a real party atmosphere, and of course the first birthday invitation followed by some celebratory presents.
But what happens when you receive what can only be described as an extremely specific ‘demand’ from said child’s parents to make the excitement sour?
This is what happened to one beleaguered parent who felt compelled to share it on Reddit. The letter’s below and well we’re feeling quite gobsmacked. Nobody wants duplicated presents and yeah, we do have a ‘wish list’ and are all for practicality, but there are ways and means of getting your point across without offending family and friends.
Not quite sure this parent got it quite right with the ‘heads up’ email they sent to family friends about their child’s first birthday invitation.
What would you do?
