    Oh that sucks! It's a tough one.

    It's going to be awkward to back out of this one. Unless I had a massive issue with the child, I'd probably just leave it and hope that for some reason they couldn't make it.

    Did your child know that you explicitly didn't want to invite the bully child?

    Did your son give the other kid all the details like time, duration etc? If not the mum will probably have you ask you at some time at which point you can say oh I'm sorry but there's limited numbers so unfortunately your son isn't invited.

    Yes it will be very awkward but if you're actively discouraging the friendship that's not necessarily a bad thing. If the mum gets offended she might be less likely to then invite your child for play dates, birthdays etc which actually will suit you better no?

    If your son gave all the details then I think you might have to suck it up as he'll turn up and you can't very well tell him to leave at that point.

So this is invitation offer round two. This child was never on the original invite list.
    DH and I were talking, and DH thinks we might get away with it if we say he invited his brother's kids knowing we had extra spots, and he refuses to talk to his brother about it (so making out like DH is being difficult) and we can't afford to pay for extra kids. Thoughts?
    Yep, I would use your DH's excuse

    I wouldn't invite the child

    I wouldn't invite them.
    And I would never turn up to a party just from word of mouth, I need a paper/sms invite. So personally I don't think you need to worry about them turning up.

    I would tell your child though that the kid can't be invited for numbers reasons. I wouldn't say it's because of xyz behaviour; you might have your child then go to school and tell the child they can't come "coz mum says you're mean" .

    Your DH's excuse is a good one so I'd go with that Luv. Can always say you had no idea he'd invited them when your child made the offer.

    I'd be telling the other childs Mum sooner rather than later as well just so it's all done & dusted😊
