I expected the party invitations to start when N started school, but it wasn’t an invite from a reception child that turned up for N.
In fact, if we’d had it just appear and not be handed over in person, we’d have had no clue where it had come from.
The invitation turned up via another reception child’s father who’d obviously been to the day nursery first to pick up the younger daughter. He’d been given 2 invitations, one for his boy J, and one to pass on to N.
We got home, and opened the party invitation and then the confusion started. Who was the child who’d invited N to the party? And it was a joint party, so who was the second child?
I spoke to J’s mum at school and she was as confused as me. We’re presuming it’s from one of the younger children. In the preschool room (age 3 years old to school), they used to split into 2 sub-rooms, pre-school and pre-reception/school ready. N rarely played with any of the children who would be the school year below, and over the summer holidays was mostly spending the day with the school age children at holiday club rather than in the nursery room. So it seemed strange that he’d have an invitation from any of the younger children.
I’ve asked N if he knew the children on the invitation. He looked at me blankly and said no. But he’s so bad with names, I’m not really surprised at that.
N’s not really a big fan of parties at the moment, so he said he didn’t want to go to one anyway, plus it clashes with other plans. But I did find it strange that they’ve invited children who
a) aren’t in the same year group,
b) seemingly don’t play with their child, and
c) aren’t at the nursery anymore
Maybe they’ve just got a massive hall and want to fill it up. But It really is a bit of a mystery party invitation/
Have you had any strange party invitations turn up that you’ve no idea where they’ve come from?
