Re: My 4 yo excluded from a party
I think if she is sad abiut not being invited, AND Emma is a friend, she can make her a card and give her a small gift and wish her a happy birthday. She can even tell Emma that she is sad that she won't be at her party and that she hopes she has a nice birthday anyways.
FWIW though, I got invited to Lindsay's party, because all of the other girls were in my class when I was 4 or 5. I worshipped the ground she walked on, and spent every recess with her and all of the other girls. Then, at the indoor mini putt game had to listen to Lindsay yelling and crying to her Mom that she didn't like me, and wanted me to go home.I wouldn't remember not being invited to that party today, nor do I recall not being invited to others. But I do remember how horrible I felt that day. I hope she loved her cake. You are a sweet Mama. Like PP have mentioned, she has a whole life of disappointments ahead of her. Why let a birthday party bring her down?
