Following a no-show the year before, one mum was taking no chances this time around. Sadly it didn’t work out.
Some images and scenarios are absolutely crushing to even imagine.
A small child left confused and upset because their birthday party is sparsely attended is arguably a strong candidate for this.
No parent wants to see that. While these things aren’t a popularity contest, turn-out matters when you’re young.
So imagine one mum’s distress at witnessing how her son’s sixth birthday party unfolded after NONE of the little boy’s friends attended (as well as their parents, who were also invited).
