Wanna take bets on how long my niece's "birthday party" will last this year?

2011 was 1 hour long, 2012 was 45 minutes
If we go,she's not getting anything.
In 2011 we bought her a kit of a jewelry box that you paint yourself-she said it was stupid,and let her friend paint it
In 2012,we bought her a sweatshirt and she threw it on the floor and walked away
We never got a thank you or an apology either time
She's 11 this year

  • I'd bring her some lemons for her sour personality.

  • Stay home and mail a card with one of those "thank you for your donation" slips for a local food bank inside, tell her since she didn't like her presents last year or the year before, you decided to make a donation in her name instead.

  • Ugh, I wouldn't go at all. Why is she so horrid?

    Those jewelry boxes you paint yourself are awesome. My daughter's done one all in glittery purple with plastic jewels on it. It's rather unique-looking since she did it all on her own, but she loves it.

  • I would send a card with your well wishes and save yourself the aggravation.

  • That year she wanted makeup. Not the kid stuff,real makeup
    I wasn't going to buy makeup for a 9 year old
    She thinks she's all grown up
