  • You can only do what you can do. haven't missed one yet, but my daughter was only in pre-K last year, kindergarten this year, so hr school career is young. Thanks for reminding me, I have to find out when the Halloween party is and sign up to bring something. I swear, I would have forgotten, so you're not so bad after all.

  • there are many parents that never get to go to a party, it really is okay to miss one as much as we'd like to be at all of them

  • I never go. I can't stand being around pushy parents and hundreds of kids. Mostly the parents though.

  • I have gone to most of my son's parties but of the ones that I missed I feel most guilty about one that I told my son I would be there and then got stuck at work.

  • Having been a room mommy I will tell you that most parents miss them and that is good. Think if each child had one or two parents in their room.

  • My son managed to miss BOTH class parties (Winter & Year End) last year due o illness and I was set to help with both of them. That being said: It is totally NORMAL to miss parties! In fact MOST parents do not attend due to work, illness or other conflicting obligations.

  • I can't recall ever going to one. I had my own classes at the time.
