A 10-year-old LAD has secretly invited his entire class to an end-of-year party at his house, unbeknownst to his mother.
Max Campbell – who I think has a solid future as a party planner – found some old leftover invitations from a previous party and decided he and his pals needed a chance to let loose, so he fulfilled them.
The next day, he went to school and handed out the invitations, which told his classmates that she was being held at his house on July 25, at 4 p.m.
The cogs for the party were in motion, but his plans were quickly shattered after a classmate’s parent made contact with Max’s surprise mother, Diane Campbell, 50, who had no no idea of the supposed gathering.
The shocked mother then had to try to get the message across that there was no such party, which wasn’t easy considering she didn’t even know how many invitations Max had managed to hand out.
Singer and professional DJ Diane, who lives in Bolton, said: “My friend messaged me to say her son was delighted to come to Max’s party.
“I wrote back to him and said ‘what a party?!’ She told me that Max invited everyone in his class to an end-of-school party.
“I had to create a status on Facebook asking people to message me because I had no idea how many invites he had sent.
“It’s a great school and there are still a lot of parents that I haven’t even met or talked to.
“Max told me that he found the invitations in my card box from when he had a birthday party before and filled them out without me knowing.
“He said he wanted an end-of-year party because sixth grade has one – elementary through high school – and he doesn’t.”
Luckily – or unfortunately depending on which side you’re on here – Diane was able to get the word out pretty cleanly through social media, so she didn’t end up with a bunch of excited, party-ready kids. his door.
“Nobody showed up, thanks to Facebook, although neighbors and friends joked that they were going to throw the party with wine and beer.
“I’m grateful we have Facebook, otherwise I would have had 31 kids on my doorstep on Monday!”
Well, better luck next time, Max.
