    Wow, next he will be setting up camp at yours! Definitely woyld be annoying though I cant help feel sorry for the kid. Must not be too fun at home or he really enjoys hanging out with your ds?

    I would tell him to come back at a more suitable time and be setting time limits on how long he can stay.

    Id be saying sorry ypu have a new rule of no friends over while the baby is sleeping for a start.

    If the kid is overstaying his welcome on a regular basis you might have to instigate a time limit for visits too or something.

    Personally id never let my children just go wandering to someone's house without being invited

    Hmm, this is very odd- especially on Easter Sunday!

    I would consider chatting to the child's parents. Do they know he is there so often? Do they think he is visiting more than one friend?
    How old is he/your DS?

    Is the kid being neglected or left alone at home? This happened a lot back home in India when we were smaller - kids left to their own devices all day whilst parents were working or busy. After mum met the parents made sure it was ok the kid or kids would just chill or veg out at our place. Often they would stay for meals too. It never bothered mum. It would bother me if someone visited in nap time as I nap then too. But otherwise I'd be ok with it.

    What are the parents like?. I honestly don't like the sound of the whole situation.

    What does your ds think? I had a code phrase with my mum when I was young when I didn't want to play with a friend so she knew to say no.

    my ds is very straight up, they can come in but Im playing my Ipod (which mean he doesnt want to put it up yet)

    my ds is 5, his friend is 8 and lives a few houses down, I know the mum as were acquainted but I wouldnt call us friends iykwim? she knows where her little one is, she thinks the kids are a pitb and hate school holidays cos she has to 'entertain' them all day every day so tries to find places for them to sleep over etc so she doesnt have to,

    I dont normally mind except i wasnt sure about the ipod thing a I feel slack telling ds to put it up and feel rude letting him play it when the kid is here, easter bothered me though because its easter and I ended up sending the kid home that day

    I would tell them 'sorry, baby is sleeping' come back later.
    We have to say this a lot to kids in our neighbourhood when they pop over. Although they do linger at the door sometimes, if it's not a good time we just apologise and offer a better time or day.
