Imagine seeing 31 kids on your on Monday saying that they are here to attend a party which you didn’t throw! This mum found herself in a similar situation and reveals her shock to learn her 10-year-old son had invited 31 classmates to a party at her house without telling her – and she only found out when a friend texted to get the details to check.
Diane Campbell, a resident of Bolton, didn’t learn her son Max was in charge of planning the end-of-year party until a friend gave her a picture of an invitation and mentioned that her son was excited to attend.
The naughty child had been inviting his classmates to a party at his house on July 25 keeping his mother unaware of it.
Luckily Diane discovered the plan a week earlier, and the other parents were informed that the party would not take place.
Diane, a 50 years old professional singer and DJ, said: ‘My friend messaged me to tell me that her son was excited to come to Max’s party.
‘I messaged her back and said “what party?” She told me Max had invited everyone from his class to an end-of-school party.
‘I had to make a status on Facebook asking people to message me because I had no idea how many invites he’d given out.
‘It’s a big school and there are still loads of parents I haven’t even met or spoken to.
‘Max told me he’d found the invitation cards in my card box from when he had a birthday party before and had filled them out without me knowing.
‘He said he wanted an end-of-term party because Year Six gets one – going from primary to secondary school – and he doesn’t.
‘Nobody turned up, thanks to Facebook, although the neighbors and friends did joke that they were going to gate crash the party with wine and beer.
‘I’m thankful we have Facebook, otherwise, I’d have had 31 kids at my door on Monday.’
