I on the whole don't enjoy them. I usually don't know anyone else there because I work full time and don't get to meet other parents at the school gates. I try and chat to others but it is often strained and difficult because it is loud and you know little about each other.
B has been invited to one tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to it but go because he will enjoy it. Is it jsut me?

Nope, hate them but have to suffer them because of the kids. I'm not one for making polite chit chat.

I hate them.
I really dislike children, and a room full of hyper ones??? Nightmare.

Can't stand them. Even when I know the other mums I find them so dull. Am glad A is getting to the age where I'll be able to leave her

Oh thank goodness - I thought you would think I was awful!
The stupid thing is I LOVE kids, just can't stand parties!

No I don't like them. A room full of children is not my idea of fun, the parties here are more tolerable as they provide booze for the parents and we've met some nice people this year.

I didn't actually enjoy them as a child either as far as I remember!
02/11/2013 at 20:20
No, as said even when I know mothers I still "suffer" them. The whole 15+ hyper children on a bouncy castle or soft play just have me a wreck too.

Nope can't stand them. Louie is so shy I have to help him with all activities whilst the other parents natter and what their delightful children run off & do everything on their own. *sigh*

I found them mostly awkward and stilted and much preferred when you could dash off and leave them at it :)

I don't mind them. H goes to his fair share too so that may be why but generally they dont bother me.
02/11/2013 at 21:41
Plus i love all the cakes

I don't mind them tbh, iv not been to
Any that's awkward small talk iyswim. Like ck h goes to
His fair share too as I often work weekends. On the whole I don't mind them, they are usually only 2 hours.
It sometimes annoy me when I think iv loads to
Do and the party is slap bang in the middle of the day.
At the most recent one from Ls scho there was a mummy dance compitition but it was v funny lol

I think I dislike them more over the summer as from May til August we have at least 3 a month to go to!
03/11/2013 at 17:02
Yes I'm one of the odd ones that loves them!
03/11/2013 at 20:02
I quite like them. It has really allowed me to get to know the other mums in A's class.
04/11/2013 at 18:16
I quite like them as it's a chance to chat with friends and get to know others that I don't know as well. The thing I don't like is that Zoe clings to me and whinges and whines ... but she'd do that anywhere
