We have all probably been guilty of making some bad decisions in our lives. Some of them only affect us but others may affect our family or perhaps even our friends. In some cases, it may even affect people that we don’t know! This mother who took over Reddit recently talked about a Build a Bear birthday party and it is a party that nobody is going to forget anytime soon. The mother of the birthday girl made a decision that affected everyone at the party and now it is affecting everyone online.
The mother took her six-year-old daughter to a birthday party at Build-a-Bear. The party was held at the store but the employees were not responsible for throwing the party. The pizza and cake were given in the food court nearby and then the kids headed over to make their own special stuffed animal and eventually went back to the birthday girl’s house. The party mom was even given extra money from the parents of the children at the party so the kids could make their own creations. That is when things turned bad.
According to the information, the children got ‘wild’ making the animals with all of these accessories. “As far as I know the parents didn’t really put a limit, but I made my daughter stick to just a standard dog with a shirt, which about half the parents did as well,” she says. But as the crew finished up, the birthday mom pulled an audible that literally dropped my jaw.
“All is well, we leave the store, then friends mom announces that the kids need to give all their animals to her daughter,” she says. “Cue the upset and angry kids. They all disappointingly handed over their animals, and friend wasn’t even being nice about it either. Another little boy didn’t want to, and friend ripped it out of his hands.”
“I probably should have said something, but I didn’t,” she laments. “The other parents seemed pretty baffled too.”
Sadly, that wasn’t even all of the torment this weirdo mom had in store. “We get back to friends house and our kids are watching as friend plays with all her new animals,” she recounts. “I left with my daughter pretty quickly, and once we got back into the car she just started bawling. I felt bad so we went to build a bear and got her a new one.”
I don’t think anyone blames her.
By the end, the mother is wondering if she is entitled and we would have to say the internet has already spoken. Entitled would be having the child build a bear even if it is not part of the budget. Having children create their own animals and then telling them to give them away is absurd.
People thought this was both cruel and bizarre.
It was just handled in all the wrong ways.
It was also a rather greedy decision, especially if the kids brought other gifts.
Some said that she should confront the birthday mother.
It seems as if she is planning on doing that. “I am planning on speaking to the mom at my daughter’s school later today”.
Perhaps a little conversation will help her to identify where she went wrong. This is one of those things that sticks with a person for the rest of their life.
