A MUM-OF-SIX was left heartbroken when nobody from her daughter’s class turned up to her fifth birthday party.
Sadie Christgau “started panicking” just two hours before the party when she realised only two children had confirmed they were coming.
Little Brogan is “very social and assumes everyone is her best friend”, her mum said.
"I thought inviting the whole class would be easier than asking her to pick a few friends, and I didn't want to leave anyone out,” Sadie added.
She couldn’t bear for her daughter to have a party with just two out of her 25 classmates, so took to social media to invite her friends and their children.
Sadie also shared her heartache in a TikTok video that amassed over three million views.
