It's My Party and You're Not Invited

With all the party shaming going on these days and what with human nature being what it is, there is always someone willing to take advantage of people's generosity. As a parent of a special needs kid I decided to stop doing the big party for a different reason entirely.

You see (except for two years at this one terrible school) all the kids show up to my girl's party. That's because I throw rocking fun parties.  I don't mean over the top expensive Pinterest parties that only people with double incomes or at least larger incomes than we have can manage.  I just put a little more effort and thought into it than some of the other parents around here.  At least I think I do. I guess I wouldn't really know because my kid only received 1 party invitation the entire school year.
