    Default Birthday parties

    How do you with having so many invites? Do you ever say no? We have one on friday, one next saturday in the morning then one in the afternoon which then turns into a sleepover and then one a week after that.

    It just seems like there are so so many. I am buying 3 presents tomorrow as school holidays i am busy and gotta get something for fridays party.

    Just seems like so many on top of school and holidays plus with me working and coop having to go away a few days here and there.

    His very lucky dd hasn't gotten any invites yet. If it were me I would allow 1 party a week depending on what else we have on that week and how tired she is. If alls good then maybe 2 a week. If 2 in a day was just a once off then I would but I wouldn't do 2 parties in a day on a regular basis.

    Yes i said no many times. Normally if the party is Sunday morning. It's OK to say I am sorry we are busy that day etc...
