She has been invited to a birthday party tomorrow evening. It is being held at a facility that she has been dying to visit and, according to her, all of the other fourth grade girls are going.
So what is our problem? The party is tomorrow evening.
We have not yet ventured into evening soccer/baseball/football practices so maybe we, as parents, are just not yet in the swing of things.
Having said that, our daughter is not yet in the swing of getting up easily for school each morning. (Not to mention the fact that she was home from school last Thursday and Friday with a fever and sore throat; she's still got a cough that won't completely go away.)
So we are not allowing her to go to a birthday party on a school night. The party is being held across town, from 7-8:30pm.
Are we being unreasonable? What do you think?
(You won't change our answer but I'm curious. Are we the only square parents out there that have raised an eyebrow over a child's birthday party on a Wednesday night?)
