Off to a soft play birthday party (DD's second birthday party invite ever)..I know the host as she is a good friend but noone else.
All the other girls are NT and will no doubt sit nicely and eat their food while I have to wrestle DD. I will also have to climb around the soft play in ungainly fashion instead of watching and chatting, as she needs help on it.
Still, pleased she got an invite though (albeit not one from nursery yet after a year)!
The dd's have a invite to a soft play party in a few week, dd2 has sudenly developed a phobia of birthdays (went mad news years day as i mentioned it was the dogs birthday), i think its to do with singing happy birthday (she hates people singing badly).
Perhaps you could back off from the food entirely, claiming she has allergies due to her SN?? That way you only have the soft play thing to worry about.
DNephew's birthday was at soft play and I spent a lot of time chasing entertaining DNiece (5, ASD) so her Mum could concentrate ont he birthday. Nobody batted an eyelid, although i'm pretty unfussed about these things, probably because I only get to do it infrequently so it feels like a treat to spend time with her iyswim
I had to go on the bouncy castle a lot as she kept lying down and I was worried her head would get squashed!
Got a small chat on but there were only a few mums there and they weren't very chatty!
One child there was visibly ill and just wanted to sit down, which I wasn't too impressed about, she should have been in bed, hope Dd doesn't catch it as she has her reschedules neuro appt next Tuesday!
