Logan and Seth are turning 4 on the 15th (I know, how did that happen?) and their party is this Saturday at Chuck E. Cheese (pass the asprin).
As such, we sent out invites a while ago.
We had in total, maybe 16+ kids invited. How many RSVP's did we get before I had to ask? TWO. I mean c'mon people, how hard is it to send an e-mail to RSVP? I need a head-count BEFORE the event. I know you're all busy but really, so are we. I know I may sound pissy but it annoys me. I always RSVP ASAP (don't you love that double acronym??).
The majority of the kids invited are the ones from their daycare. I had to re-contact each one to ask - again - if their child was able to come. I'm going to start to take this personally soon. And then when I ask I get "I hope so" and "I'll let you know". Ugggggg. I need to know this time around because we have to give a fairly accurate count before the event - I wouldn't care as much if we were just having it at home or a park or someplace but this is paid PER kid.
Oh well, I have to just let it go - I have a good idea now who is coming and will call in that number and hope they all show up (or we'll be paying for the ones who don't). I sure hope that we get a better response for our wedding invites (more on that another time).
And what's the deal with Thank You notes - I can't tell you how many kid b-day parties we've been to where we never rec'd a thank you note (or an e-mail, or a call...). Laura says that it seems like saying "Thank You" at the party is good enough - neither of us agree. Oh well that's enough ranting now.
