A bit of help please ladies (and gents)
I'm currently 37wks pregnant with a 3&5yo. Between now and late October dd1 has been invited to 11 birthday parties and dd2 to 9. Luckily 7-8 are mothers group or family friends so they know my circumstance of dh being away with baby almost due. So my attendance is flexible and I can cancel on the day if I feel like crap plus I can take both kids or all three kids.
The issue is with daycare and kindy parties where only one kid of mine is invited. I have no qualms saying no to whole class parties unless my kid is a close friend. But it's the ones that only a few have been invited that worry me. Some of these kids my girls have rarely mentioned them as playmates and what I don't want is the birthday kid to invite only a few (Inc my kid) and them decline and it upsets them. And how do I explain to parent that it's an invite one get the siblings for free thing politely?? Or that I could end up cancelling last moment ??
Urgh! 1st world problems I know. Pregnancy hormones not helping.
