This the same Becky who latter became part of the high school pop band group 4-Evah?
Elle: "Because you kids are turning it into a “Wreck” room."
It is the only room built to be wrecked.
I am amazed that no other member of the Patterson family is interested in celebrating April’s birthday with her aside from Elly. It seems a bit heartless to abandon Elly.
And the reign of Becky begins
because it’s already a wrecked room
Um… Rec it already is?
What an appropriate name, rec room
HAPPY BIRTHDAY April! Today is my birthday too! Only I’ve got 63 years on you. LOL
Doesn’t she mean “wrecked room”?
‘cause it’s the WRECK room. Rumpus room in the Fifties.
“Wreck” room, please…
What the heck, wreck the rest of the house!
Cracks me up that nobody seems to read anybody else’s comments, but they all must assume theirs will be read.
16 comments so far, not counting either of mine…
And EIGHT of them are just too make a joke about “rec” sounding like “wreck”.
If there a prize, Enter.Name.Here said it first, 8 hours ago.
As for the family not celebrating April’s birthday with her…
A toddler birthday party is quite often separate from the family celebration, especially if there are older children, or other relatives or grownups who might be invited.
They don’t necessarily want to play preschool games and watch the balloon artist (though I do).
The family has probably been telling her “happy birthday” all morning , and will celebrate at dinner, when this is over, and maybe after a nap or quiet time.
I agree that it would be nice if other family members helped out at the kid’s party, too.
I don’t know whether Elly is trying to do this alone, but in my limited experience it’s often the mother(s) of another attendee or two who are asked to help supervise.
I’ve seen parties where they ALL stay, especially when their kids are still two.
Because we’re trying to keep the damage costs down.
Because, she doesn’t want you to wreck the whole house.
Be thankful that making “slime” was not a thing yet…
It is now a wreck room!
The ’Wreck Room" might be a more suitable name today…
I was thinking it was great that all the kids showed up. There have been very sad stories posted about birthday parties planned by a parent, then none of the invited children showed up – even if their parent(s) said they were going to come.
Because that’s where little nose pickers belong…
That’s when kid’s parties were fun. Now they just sit around with their smartphones. They play pin the tail on the donkey with an app
The “Wrecked” room, formerly the Rec room.
I didn’t know the “W” in Rec room was silent, but describes it perfectly.
To limit the destruction…
Happy 32nd Birthday, April!
With parties for children that small, the parents are supposed to stay.
It’s now a wreck room.
LOOKS more like the Wrecked room.
I’d just like to wish you all a happy Ay-po Foob’s Day!!
Because I am only cleaning up one room, that’s why.
I never had that problem with kids’ parties. Just how long did she leave them in charge without any adults to supervise? Who would leave even one 3-year-old alone for more than 30 seconds?
I thought the rule of thumb was 1 kids for every year. Even that few would be a challenge.
Wow. She sure has rather quickly become quite articulate!
Well look who speaks in full, grammatically correct sentences all of a sudden. (I’m not going to split hairs over “hafta.”)
Because they need quiet for Michael’s circumcision.
She has to ask “Why?” Look around, kiddo.
She doesn’t want any other room to be a wrecked room.
This is the beauty of Chuckie Cheese- the mess stays there
Party in the wreck room.
This is why the rule of thumb for number of kids invited to a birthday party is the number of years the birthday child is plus one. This is not a joke.
Well there’s a perfect example of kids not learning how to behave in someone else’s house.
Or wreck room
Because this room is already a “rec.”
You mean the wreck room?
