My daughter Ava is 6. Her BFF is having her own 6th birthday party next weekend. Ava is so excited to go, it's a Sugar and Spice party.
The girls will all get Rock Star makeovers complete with hair and nails and costumes. Then they'll get to go "onstage" and perform on camera in flashing lights and sing karaoke at the Sugar and Spice studio. They will also get a special limo ride around town together. It's a rock star night!
I know she will be starstruck and it will be a lot of fun. My problem? I was just made aware that parents, none of us, are allowed on the limo ride. Not even the birthday girl's Mother. There will be no parental supervision, only representatives of the company.
I don't like the idea of complete strangers taking a whole group of our little girls away in a limo expressly telling us parents that no one can supervise. They are 6 years old. It's not like they are teenagers, or even pre-teens.
My husband thinks I am overreacting to have fear about that, and to consider talking to the company or withholding just that portion of the party from Ava. But my Mommy alarms are ringing. What do you think? Do any of you have experience with these kinds of parties?
