I Survived, But Learned My Lesson

What do you do when your daughter comes to you and asks to have a "sweet sixteen" party with some of her friends at home? Well, being a regular parent, you think, oh some of your friends, maybe 10 or so, well, what do you want to do? Have a bonfire and grill out. As a parent, you think, pretty easy to handle...right? WRONG. Try having 60 teenagers coming and going, eating, drama between guys wanting to fight, girls crying over boyfriends acting like, well, little boys. SIGH. I survived, though. But learned my lesson well. When the 6 yr old and the 4 yr old turn 16 and ask for a party, I'll have to think of an alternate route that doesn't involve all these kids at my house. Now to get the teen up to clean up the mess. Wish me luck!

You are so brave!! So glad you survived! Wow, I'll have to include a star-shaped wound in one of my stories. :-D

You poor momma. But like Kelly said, sounds typical. Luckily the next oldest has many more years.

Glad you survived, girlie! Glad it was you, and not me. Don't get the star-shapted wound comment, but whatever. LOL! I'm still waiting for this to happen here. I'm guessing it may be the 17th since the 16th didn't pan out. Or maaaaaaaybe...I actually slid by with daughter number one. :-)

We allowed my son to have parties for his two years of Junior High. Will I do the High School party thing? No way!

It was very nice brave and nice of you to have to party for your daughter. She'll never forget that day. I hope plenty of pictures were taken for the memories. I've read about many Sweet 16 and Quinceanera party planning success stories and a handful of horror stories as well. A Sweet Sixteen is one of those parties that your girls will never forget. Good luck with your other two girls!!! Respectfully, Goris. MySweet16online.com
