    So true! We have an 8 year old boy party here Saturday- 2 hours is plenty.

    I see John didn’t help out one bit and who’s gonna clean up the mess? Elly. Where’s John?

    Where’s John? Probably at his dentist office earning money to pay for that party. But that doesn’t matter since all husbands are to be hated because they are all worthless. Right?

    And that was with only nine guests! Does everyone still think that Elly should have let Michael invite his entire class and half the neighborhood? :-P

    That’s a pretty big chip on your shoulder.
    I’m not arguing with you — I’m just a bit surprised by the bitterness you seem to have.

    And that’s why I am happy to celebrate birthdays somewhere else (like a bowling alley, a roller rink, a jumping place). Worth every penny, in my opinion.

    @gaebie

    Yes, you do seem like a pretty bitter person. I don’t know what experience you went through to give you this idea, and I don’t really care. Running a house and raising children is a team effort. It’s up to each couple to figure out how they divide up the responsibilities, and if you are unhappy about how things are done, then talk rationally to your partner rather than making blanket statements on a comic that obviously are resentful.
    p.s. There are plenty of parents (male and female) who work at a job and also come home and help out there. It’s definitely not a bizarre concept.

    Where was the baby daddy during this romp fest? He’s a man, it was a boy’s party. Why the no-show??

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This strip was the catalyst for several letters from post-birthday party moms who wanted to say, “Thanks for telling it like it is.” Being able to throw a well-planned kids’ party is something moms take pride in, and only WE know how much work it is!

    Why does Lizzie have her hand over her mouth? Is she getting ready to barf up all the candy & cake she probably ate?
