I'm the one who has issues smile.gif

You're right. Dd had fun with whoever was there. There was one kid and the kid's siblings that she really didn't want to invite. She is mean. What can I say? They get mean at this age. And, I didn't see her playing with them. I mean I know she had her reasons and I am looking at her feelings through my eyes - an adult's. As an adult I'd let go of any minor issues KWIM? But she played with whoever else was there. A month later she was going to someone else's party and was v. excited. I just happened to comment then that she was more excited than she was at her own party and she said she didn't like her party that much because she had already played at that place before, as in, attended someone's else's party at the place. Well, also the kids tend to feel your stress so I'd say this one was less enjoyable for her than the last one we'd celebrated, which was a couple of yrs ago. Thanks for asking.

Soooo... just found out PreK ends May 22nd, so I think the early birthday party coinciding with the end of the school year is
probably out. I know she wants the party, but I'm starting to think about doing a fun day with one good friend, and a family party later.

That's my plan for next year's birthday - one friend. They aren't best friends or anything but I know I can rely that she'll come unless she's sick. And with one friend it would be easy to cancel and reschedule. If next year she has made some other friend/s that she really wants then it will be them as well but probably not more than 3 kids.

When my kids wers toddlers and preschoolers I used to envy parents whose kids had summer birthdays smile.gif They could just throw the party in their back yard, or even a park, and I was stuck inside in the middle of winter (or a rainy fall day).
I'm sure your dd will have fun, whatever you decide.

Ds 9 and dd 5
