And in the lead-up to the party, Susann only received five RSVPs – all saying that invitees would not be attending. This didn’t necessarily surprise her, though. “I assumed there would be a few kids that didn’t show up – because, hey, it is summer vacation,” Susann went on to write.
So, with only five “No” RSVPs and 25 unanswered invitations, 31-year-old Susann prepared herself for the big day. She decided to pay for any extra children who showed up, since her package only had ten spots.
“My kiddo wanted everyone to be included. He hates having anyone left out of anything,” Susann later wrote. But on the day, Max would have the opposite problem – much to his mother’s chagrin. “I wasn’t emotionally prepared for what did happen,” Susann explained after the event.
