As fellow moms, you know what a pain it is to plan a birthday party. Well, add boy/girl twins to that birthday party and it makes the task virtually impossible.
We're planning the festivities at our local athletic club. For a fee (which is in no way nominal) they provide 1 hour with your choice of ONE of the following: gym games/pool party/rock climbing. They also provide 1 hour for food and presents including the pizza and drinks. My only responisbility is to send out invites, bring plates, napkins, plastic-ware and cake.
The issue I'm running into right now is who to invite. There are 14 boys and 6 girls in their class. We can only invite 12 kids so we won't be inviting everyone, obviously. We've narrowed the list to 6 kids in their class (not counting them) and 5 kids from past playgroups and such. The three of us have decided on 11 kids. 6 boys and 5 girls. I'm wracking my brain trying to find the best 12th girl for the part. The problem is that the 6 girls in her class are paired up as "best friends". The 5th girl is my daughter and the 6th girl is also a twin which means we would have to invite him which would throw the numbers off completely. So that's my predicament. Is it even possible to have a party and not leave someone out? Grr.
Sorry...this entry is more verbal processing than anything...didn't mean to bore you.
