To think if you give a 3 year old girl a pair of fairy wings as she arrives at a party you should let her keep them?

hmm yes it would have been nice to let them keep it, she could have done it instead of party bag or something if worried about the cost

I think she should have been clear in the beginning that they were hired (or whatever) and could not be taken home. that way, the kids would not have been upset.

aww bless the poor little girls in tears. She could have at least explained on your arrival so that the parents could be clear with their kids from the beginning. My dd would have been upset too.

What is the Mum planning on doing with all the fairy wings? Odd. YANBU.

girlsyearapart Sat 26-Sep-09 21:05:26

Maybe she's going to have her own adult fairy party tonight ewe??

Yanbu. Would expect it to be made clear from beginning or let them keep.

maybe she is having a ladies night later in the day grin

but yeah, either give them away instead of party bags or say "here are some fairy wings you can borrow for the party games"

maybe she did hire them

to be fair, it mgiht eb the first birthday party she has done and simply didnt realise this might happen, especially if she has just 1 angelic little dd who doesnt say boo to a goose.

That's a terrible and ill thought out thing to do! Who couldn't have predicted that the girls would have thought they could keep them? hmm

agree with the others that a warning would have (possibly but not definitely) averted the tears. but I expect the mum in question also realises that - now. poor woman. we all live and learn.

oh you'd have to be thick not to realise that's a daft thing to do to 3 year olds - even a 12 year old would be upset if not made clear

If that had happened at a party DD went to, she would have been upset. I presume they were hired but it wod have been a good idea to exain the children were borrowing them.

TheFallenMadonna Sat 26-Sep-09 21:11:53

She missed a trick.
Make the wings.
Doubles as a party activity and a take home present.
I have very vivid memories of DD's friend's dad's face while escorting his DS home in a lovely pair of pink sparkly wings grin

erm the woman made a mistake, cos shes human, not cos she's thick!

yep, ill thought out idea, probably in the stress of planning abirthday party, ah well no real harm done eh!

Tortington Sat 26-Sep-09 21:15:06

ill thought out

franklymydear Sat 26-Sep-09 21:19:20

the kind of mistake made by someone a bit thick

franklymydear Sat 26-Sep-09 21:21:11

can you hire fairy wings then. Really? They only cost a couple of quid each,

making thhem would have been an excellent idea

Heated Sat 26-Sep-09 21:29:16

Ah, bless your wee dd.

Bet the host is rueing the wings idea with a big glass of wine right now and dreading her she'll be known as the woman who made the entire party of 3yr old girls cry!

Tortington Sat 26-Sep-09 21:29:26

quite frankly my dear i would rather have not thought something through, than be willfully mean
