Three, four and five year olds are a funny bunch. The conversations I overhear during play dates, during scooter rides, and during games of tag at the playground are hilarious.
“You’re not coming to my birthday” – tell me it’s just not my kids and their friends that are birthday party invitation obsessed?
If you piss one of them off, take a toy or don’t agree to play the game that they want to play, you’re likely going to get threatened with an uninvite to their birthday. If they’re in a mood and unimpressed with your big sister, they might just suggest that you not invite your sister to your upcoming birthday party, and when they logically determine that your mom is going to make her go, they agree that they just won’t talk to her.
Hilarious. The uninvited sister’s crime? She’s not home to play with them.
If you don’t stop for fries on the way home, because you just had dinner, you might just get told that you’re uninvited to your own child’s party. The one that you haven’t really planned because they’re the second child and really, how many close friends does a three year old that doesn’t go to preschool really have?
If you’re six, and you insist that it’s not really a tea party – just a water party, you might be uninvited to the party. That one, is the latest in our house, high up on the offense list that comes with a threat of being uninvited.
What’s with the birthday party obsession? It could be ten months away from a party celebration and they get that look on their face when you do something they don’t agree with and before you know it they’ve officially uninvited you to the party.
If you’re looking for me, I’ll be over trying to earn my way back onto the special coveted birthday party guest list, for a three year old.
