Boy left heartbroken after no one pitched at his birthday party

Every parent wants to see their child happy, especially on their birthday. That is why this mom, Kristen Layne, planned a big birthday party for her son, Mae Mae.

Birthday cake

"Next year you'll be in public school. You're going to have lots of classmates to invite. Don't you worry buddy." He smiled and his big brown eyes sparkled with excitement as he replied with "Yay! I can't wait!" This ninth birthday was supposed to be his year. His special day. His first real party with friends," Kristen wrote on her blog,

It was meant to be one special party, with a ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ theme and themed invitations, games, and cake. But things did not go according to plan. The mom took to her blog to express her devastation and pain she was left to deal with after none of the invited guests pitched.

“I write this post with swollen, puffy eyes, still raw and burning from crying myself to sleep on my pillow. What was supposed to be a fun filled birthday party weekend, complete with pizza, cake, games, prizes and friends, went horribly wrong,” she wrote.

“Shortly after my husband arrived home with enough pizza to feed a small army.  The party should've been in full swing at that point, but instead M hung his head, his tiny shoulders began to shake. "No one came Dad. I guess i'm not very popular at school" and he sobbed,” Kristen added.

“Words cannot describe the utter and complete devastation that washed over me, my husband and my nearly 70 year old father who was almost brought to tears himself.  Seeing my heartbroken little boy sitting all alone at his brightly decorated, empty party table was more than I could take. I briefly excused myself to my bathroom and sobbed quietly, as I didn't want to upset him any further.”

How sad?!
