My twins are 7 and 1/2. They've been invited to birthday parties before but always both of them. Or if just one was invited it didn't work out because of our plans, so we've never had to deal with this issue before. Today Zoey is going to her first birthday party without her sister. Ayelleah is struggling with this. She doesn't understand why she can't go. I feel awkward asking the mom (who knows they're twins) if Ayelleah can go, so I didn't.
How do other moms of twins handle this? Do you ask if the twin can go? Or do you just let the one go and try to explain it. I've explained that since they're in different classes with different friends they're not always both going to get invited. I assured her that her time would come when she would be invited and Zoey wouldn't. But that doesn't ease the problem today.
I figured that I would take her to the mall and let her pick out some candy and have a good time.
What do you guys think?
