Would you side eye this ? NWR
Re: Would you side eye this ? NWR
I would have agreed with you until I had my kids. I've never once gone to a birthday party without my kid taking a gift and I don't think there was ever any invited kids who ever didn't bring a gift to my kids birthday parties. Not all parents asked what that my particular kid liked or what size they wore, but the vast majority did when they RSVP'd that they would be coming. I personally believe a kids birthday party is a gift giving event, and although registry information would be wrong, guidance is okay. The kid invitations sent out, even if mailed, aren't really formal in nature, but if you are going the way of Facebook invites a comment on there about likes and sizes is just that, a comment. It can be ignored.
As a gift giver I want to make sure the person getting the gift will like what the get. Since it is a child, one that I don't know, and tastes/preferences change on a whim, I do make sure to ask. I wouldn't side eye that information as long as it was general information. But like I said, that is my opinion, as a parent with many parties behind her.
