I just met my best friend for a coffee, to give her her 30th Birthday present before she goes off for a childfree sexfest week in Mauritius with her DH as a 30th Birthday present envy. I got her a pair of very naughty Agent Provocateur, knickers, karma sutra guide, hand cuffs, a feather boa, and this chocolatey lube stuff .I hasten to add this was intended as a joke, I actually got her a day at a spa. She unwrapped a boys top from Zara Kids, a small puzzle and a power ranger action doll thingy.

This means the 4 year old boy whose party my DT'S are at has unwrapped her present. shock shock shock shock shock. I know for a fact it has been opened as there had been a small mix up with times, and they had to wait 10 minutes to be allowed into the soft play, and so when I was leaving the birthday boy's mum was calling them over to open presents to pass the time.

WHY did I use identical wrapping paper? But more importantly what do I do when I go to fetch them in an hour? Even worse, the whole of their nursery room was invited, plus a few other friends, the majority of which are there. Doubly doubly worse, I was the only mum/nanny to leave, so they will all know.

You can buy a flight to Canada from there which will leave in a couple of hours.

I think that is your best bet.

grin you poor sod grin

Oh dear! I 100% feel for you.

Deep breaths. Can you MN from the car (not driving) for moral support before you go in.

do you have a mobile number you can call to guage reaction and explain that there was a tiny bit of a mix up? They will have guessed this anyway and I'm sure will see the funny side.

What are the parents like?

How I wish I were a fly on the wall grin

Never happened.

bambiandthumper Tue 04-Jan-11 14:47:58

DH suggesting calling her but I know the deed has been done now. I don't have her number either as my phone got dropped in the bath last night.

Fuckity fuckity fuck

I am never going to live this down.

This is the worst thing I have heard for a long time. Are you SURE?? Do you have a mobile for the birthday boy's Mum so you can tell her about the mix up.


GetOrfMoiLand Tue 04-Jan-11 14:48:08

I would have LOVED to have seen your face when you saw the power ranger toy.

Does it buzz? All may not be lost for your friend.

I can well imagine a load of kids running round a softplay with feather boas, whilst putting lube down the tubve slide and manacling small babies with the handcuffs.

SoupDragon Tue 04-Jan-11 14:48:25

I reckon you should emigrate to Mauritius.

Is the phone number on the party invite for the RSVP?

Sazisi Tue 04-Jan-11 14:51:30

Phone the actual play centre, and ask to speak to the mum, say Very Important!
At least if you've made an attempt to prevent him opening it she'll be more forgiving?
