Dear Parents, Please send out birthday invitations more than just a few days before the event. My daughter would love to go, but we have plans. Had you given us even a week's notice, this wouldn't have been a problem. Sincerely, Annoyed. But seriously, both of my daughters have rec'd invites in the past couple of weeks, and both were sent just a couple days before the event. They were Evites, so it's not like my kids just forgot to give them to us.
