    in that case....i would say no, it's not ok.

    The people i would ring or ask for a sleep over are good friends that we see often and not just for babysitting.

    I have called and asked people to have DS for a sleep over before...but it was me asking them a favour as i needed a baby sitter (and this was made clear and the favour was returned).

    I would see it as her wanting babysitting for free...not a genuine "friends sleepover" and if that is the only contact...i find it a bit rude.

    I don't think it's okay to invite yourself to anything.

    It disempowers the other person and removes their privileged right to be in control of their own space and functions.

    It's different if you have an open friendship where people are free to drop around, but when you generally organise things, it's not okay to just invite yourself.
