DD's birthday is coming up and because of various commitments the only day free to have a party for her and her schoolfriends that's near her birthday is Father's Day. We're only inviting 4 friends to make it a smaller do and intending to give out invites tommorrow but I'm now panicking that no-one will come because of the day. WWYD - have it then anyway and hope they don't all say no, or have it after school on her actual birthday, which would be very awkward but just about do-able?
Me neither Bagda - not because I'm a lone parent but because we don't really 'do' those days. My mum is quite militant about it, taking the view that it was her choice to become a parent and that's that. And my dad never did anything that would qualify for a thanks on Father's Day (not quite true but the number of times he was late with the [meagre] child support when we had absolutely no money as children speaks for itself).
Hope you get some positive responses but if not, at least it will be an interesting social study into how other people spend Father's Day!
True! Will definitely be interesting to see if my/our experience is common or if people really do make a big deal of these 'Days'. Never made a big deal of Mother's Day either, when I was little it was just a card, small present then get on with the day as normal and the same from dd now. Somewhere along the way the 'Hallmark' vision of everyone else floating off for a special lunch and a whole day out planned got into my head
