We went to a birthday party last weekend for a friend's son who was turning six. He has pretty severe autism, so it was very low-key and unstructured - food and cupcakes were out for whoever wanted to eat, presents were put in a corner, and it was held at a walled playground so the kids (many of whom had special needs like autism too) could play or eat or sit in the shade whenever they wanted to. I bought the birthday boy a slinky (he LOVED Babybartfast's last time he was over for a play date) and two passes to a local indoor playground. The passes were in a small envelope, like you might get in a bouquet, partly tucked into the slinky box.
When he did come and was willing to sit still long enough to open a few presents, he dropped everything to play with the slinky for almost twenty minutes
(Which was good, since he needed to come out of the sun for a bit!) In the excitement over the slinky, though, I think the envelope got stuck in the box without my friend or her husband seeing it.
Here's my question - do I email my friend to make sure she saw it? I wasn't thinking about it until after we left, and by now if she was going to throw it out by mistake, it's probably already happened. Plus it would put her in an awkward position. If she hasn't seen it yet and hasn't thrown it out yet either, though, I'd hate to not say anything . . .
