A mom threw a Build-a-Bear Workshop party for her child and pulled a move that’s so bold and shocking, you’ll have to read it to believe it.
An anonymous mom held a party for her daughter’s sixth birthday and invited a bunch of her friends from school. The party involved cake, pizza, and a Build-a-Bear Workshop. So far, so good.
But after the kids finished painstakingly building their bears, the mom announced that they had to hand them over to the birthday girl. All of the bears were, apparently, for her.
Needless to say, there were a lot of tears and disappointment.
The story made it onto social media, thanks to the parent of one of the attendees. People are having very strong reactions, because seriously, who does this?!
“I AM ANGRY AT THIS,” one Twitter user wrote.
“MONSTER,” writer Nicole Cliffe tweeted.
The bad news is that there’s not really a happy ending to this story. The good news is that it is a truly wild ride that will make you feel great about yourself in comparison!
A Reddit user shared the most stunningly awful story on /r/Parenting this week. The user was upset after a child’s birthday party took a strange turn and wanted to know if the user, whose child attended the party, was overreacting or not. Spoiler: the user was not.
The story began:
“Earlier today I went to a birthday party for my daughters (6) friend from school.”
“We had cake and pizza in the food court, then went down to BAB [Build-a-Bear] to make bears, then back to friends house for the rest of the party.”
The invitation had said that each kid would get to make a bear, and the parent assumed that the kids would take their bears home at the end. There were about eight kids at the party.
“Me and my husband even pitched in about 30 dollars as we know these things can get expensive,” the parent wrote.
