Touching: Mums, What Would Do If You Experience This On Your Son's Birthday? by Explorers(m): 7:28pm On Oct 31, 2016
A heartbroken mother has penned an emotional blog post after no one turned up to her son's ninth birthday party.

The mother-of-six, who goes by the pen name Kristen Layne, shared the post on her website, Life on Peanut Layne, describing her son Mahlon as'bright, sensitive and caring'.

She added that the young boy is also 'naturally funny, easy to please and looks at life with hope and optimism. the kid who would give the shirt off of his back to a stranger, hand over a beloved toy to make another child smile.'

But despite this, not one single child from school or Mahlon's taekwondo class came to his birthday party.

After Mahlon spent his first year attending a public school, after being home schooled for much of his life, Ms Layne, from Oregon, was sure that plenty of other children would turn up to his party.'

This ninth birthday was supposed to be his year. His special day. His first real party with friends,' Ms Layne wrote.

The doting mother chose a 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' theme because it is Mahlon's favorite book series, and ordered him custom invitations on Etsy, an edible cake topper, and even planned some fun Diary of a Wimpy Kid-themed games.

'He handed out multiple invitations to his friends at school, and one friend from taekwondo, and eagerly counted down the days, hours, and minutes until his birthday,' she wrote.'

When his birthday finally arrived yesterday, he was up before the sun. He hung streamers, blew up balloons, cleaned his room, took a bath, picked out his outfit, set the table, and carefully assembled the treat bags for his friends.

"'Only three more hours until my friends arrive," he yelled. "This is the happiest day of my life, Momma. I can't wait until my friends get here!"'

Ms Layne shared pictures of her son posing by the party decorations all smiles as he waited for his friends to arrive.

'I guess I'm not very popular at school': Despite having enough pizza to 'feed a small army', party games and a large cake, only Mahlon's family and family friends turned up.

Kindness of strangers: Since posting about the experience, little Mahlon has been sent a flood of gifts and words of support.

so touching, but it can't happen in Nigeria. You can host a party and not even taste from your food, and some people will still tell you they didn't taste anything. cool Naija I hail!!

In a community of average class families, the noise from music and scent of free food is enough to bring people cheesy

She needs to visit his school and watch his typical day in class. There's something wrong. This is not normal, not even one person showed up? If he is as nice as she says then he didn't give those cards out, haba how can someone invite e.g. 15 people and none showed up

Yea, i have same thought. Something must have gone wrong. She said he gave out cards, but they didn't turn up despite that. Even the five friends he was so sure about. Like it was planned, not even one of the friends.
