To be irritated that my child was not allowed to blow out the candles on the birthday cake?

DS went to a 3rd birthday party this weekend. When I collected him, he was very distressed, and I finally got him to tell me why.

When the birthday cake was brought through, only the child whose birthday it was, was allowed to blow out the candles. DS tried to blow out one, but this other child selfishly blew out the lot hmm.

AIBU to think that this selfish brat should learn to share?!

i presumed this was a deliberate over the top troll as an attempt at satire.

I can't understand why all the candles weren't given to your son to blow out. When I have a party I always let the most spoilt child blow out all the candles.

He does NOT spit on the cake hmm I don't know about your 3 yo, but mine can control his dribbling!

I don't think they opened the gifts, at least I have not received a thank you letter for the Oxfam goat we bought him

When kids blow out candles they blow lots of germs onthe cake maybe your son looked extra germy that day? wink
