Friend schedules party on same night - intended or coincidence?
I'm not sure what to make of this situation, as I can see logic for both sides of this coin. Would love to hear someone else's take on it.
We scheduled a birthday party for our 13yo. The Monday before her party, she learned that another girl in her circle scheduled a party for the same night.
- She's not particularly close to the girl these days, (although has been in the past), but they do share a lot of mutual close friends.
- The girl is only having 4 people attend hers, but they are 4 of my 13yo's close friends also.
- One of the 4 friends is splitting her time between parties.
I explained to my 13yo that a lot of thought goes into choosing a date. Perhaps her parents had other calendars to coordinate, and might not have asked if there were conflicts at school. (When we scheduled our date, I didn't ask...)
Am I naive? Is there more to this than meets the eye? Did I say the right thing? I always second guess myself.
