My DD has been invited to her 1st birthday party for a friend she has made at daycare. The invite was placed in her bag.
I'm really happy that she has made a friend as she has been shy and keeping to herself at daycare and just recently seems to have been playing with this girl.
I have never met the mum of the birthday girl as we never drop off/pick up at the same time.
Would it be appropriate to send a text to respond to the invite? I would love my DD to go. I'm just really nervous about turning up to a strangers house and not sure if I'm expected to stay for the party (I'm hoping so because my DD is only 3 and don't want to leave her in a strange environment)
I get really anxious and awkward meeting new people.
How does this party thing work? My DD has only ever been to family/friends parties.
