Ok, I need a little advise from any moms (or dads, but I don’t think I have any dad readers yet and if I do why are you not commenting? Go ahead, don’t be shy! I love comments!) who have been through this before. Bud turns 5 in July and I have to start getting his party organized. I’m thinking of doing it at our local park because they have a pavilion and it’s next to the swing sets (it’s not at my house and there is a playground, need I say more?).
My need for advice comes from the fact that I don’t know what to do about Bud’s classmates. Do I need to invite all of his classmates (keep in mind he goes to two Pre-K programs)? I’ll definitely be inviting a few of them because I know their mom’s from t-ball and just being around town but do I have to invite ALL of the kids? I don’t even know who he’s friends with (I’m super involved, can’t you tell!) and I can’t exactly ask him because he’s a fair weather friend. He’s not friends with one kid right now because Bud wanted cold sand and the other kid wanted warm sand. (I don’t even know what this means but is apparently a big enough deal to end a friendship.)
As you may be able to tell, I really don’t want to invite all of his classmates and I’m basically looking for people to tell me that it’s totally ok to play favorites or that I’d better suck it up and invite everyone otherwise I’ll go down in bad mommy history (I’m already heading there I don’t need a violent shove by not having the proper etiquette).
So what say you faithful readers?
