To think some mums are being very nasty about DDs birthday

My DD will be six soon and will be having a party. I made some invitations for her to hand out in school and put in a lovely poem:

It's my birthday soon
Six I will be
I'd like you to come
and join the par-tee.

I have dolls, I have books,
I have crayons galore,
I have so much lego,
It covers the floor.

So when you are coming,
To my birthday bash,
Please don't bring presents
Just give me some cash.

Some of the mums have been very shirty with me at the school gates and a few have sent snooty notes saying their DCs won't be at the party.

AIBU to think some people are very rude and should be delighted and honoured that their children have been invited to share DD's special day. angry

Nice one atthewelles 9/10 for effort!

You are joking, right?

Bit rude to ask for cash. I'm quite shocked TBH.

Hope this is a reverse aibu. That's very grasping.

The last line of the poem is rather crass.

I can actually imagine some of the mums I know doing this...

Has to be a joke- made me smile!

usualsuspect Thu 07-Feb-13 15:31:10

oh is it a thread about a thread?

I can't be expected to read every bloody thread on MN <mumbles>

LadyIsabellaWrotham Thu 07-Feb-13 15:31:31

I believe this to be a wedding-related thread. V funny.

I would be annoyed . Cash?! Vouchers at a push but only if I was asked what dc would want. I wouldn't do it.

grin is this a joke thread, please tell me it is.

Hullygully Thu 07-Feb-13 15:32:18

heh heh

No, not a wind up. We thought we could use all the cash and put it towards a family holiday in Spain. It would be a lovely way of remembering all her little friends back home in England while we're sunning ourselves on the beach.

Joke thread about the other thread, right?

snowtimelikethepresent Thu 07-Feb-13 15:33:25

grin at OP

DeepRedBetty Thu 07-Feb-13 15:33:59

Has this anything to do with a thread I Hid ages ago perchance?

Not surprised some parents are being snooty, I can take the 'joke' about money but it's a bloody awful poem, fails to rhyme and scan!
