to think that 7pm - 9pm is too late for a birthday party for 3 year olds?

My DS has just come home from nursery with a birthday party invite for 7pm - 9pm! Isn't this a bit late for a party for 3 year olds?? If the rest of the little guests are anything like my DS they'll be on the ragged edge of tiredness come 7pm, never mind 9pm. But perhaps I'm being a bit of an old fuddy duddy wink
Would welcome MN'ers views before I decide how to RSVP. Thanks

I wouldn't send my ds's to a party at that time.

I am actually quite shock by that!

Madness! shock

Really for 3 year olds. Not 13 year olds?

Is a crazy idea - most 3 year olds well off to sleep shortly after 7pm.

I'd be surprised if my 5 &6 year old got invites like that tbh.

Ergh no. It would not be fun, and next day would be horrid.

I would just rsvp and say sorry we won't be able to come. Prior engagement. (bed!)

Blardy ridculous!

What are they doing-going to a casino?

fk me

RSVP like this

"Are you fucking insane? Have you ever met a 3 year old? No way am I having 3 days off buggered up sleeping patterns just so your pfb can have cake at a time convenient for you. Bog off."

Send a card.

Perhaps she doesn't actually want anyone to turn up grin.

Yanbu, my 5yr old would have difficulty staying up until 9pm as she goes to bed at 7pm.

TheGashlycrumbTinies Sat 04-Oct-08 17:18:28

Obviously more for the adults than the 3 year old.

Totally inappropriate.

I wouldn't even think twice, I would just turn it down. That's just going to be a huge whinge fest, and your child will be tired and irritable the next day too.

GrabShellDude Sat 04-Oct-08 17:21:30

Lol at Fabio. 7 to 9pm for 3 year olds? That is just madness.

PinkTulips Sat 04-Oct-08 17:23:01

sad for the poor kid though as even if anyone does bring their kids it'll be a horrible party with a gaggle of overtired, suger loaded preschoolers running around trying to tear each others eyes out.

idiotic parents!

unfitmother Sat 04-Oct-08 17:24:10

YANBU, it's stupid!

Dottoressa Sat 04-Oct-08 17:26:35

Ridiculous! Mine were asleep at 7 when they were three...

GetOrfMoiLand Sat 04-Oct-08 17:27:03

Where the hell is it being held? In a cocktail bar?

Madness. I am a bit pissed off that DD recieved an evening invitation (7 - 10pm on a Saturday night, fgs), and she is 12.

bugsymalone Sat 04-Oct-08 17:29:43

Much relieved to learn that I'm not an old fuddy duddy!!!!! And the party is at one of those play barns to add to the potential carnage potential!

Kimi Sat 04-Oct-08 17:30:14

decided against a swim party for DSs 8th as the only time they had was 7-8.45 and it seemed a bit late

AbbaFan Sat 04-Oct-08 17:36:34

Crazy and I have never heard of such a late party before.

Latest we've ever been to is 4-6pm.

sounds ridiculous .. my 3 year old is in bed before the party even begins!

elmoandella Sat 04-Oct-08 17:47:53

{hmm} are you going to be only other 3 yo there and rest is adult family?

wtf would you hold party at this time otherwise?

i wouldn't go unless your dc isn't hugely affected by the odd late bed time.

my dc can have the odd late night for special occasions without affecting next day. just give a nap in afternoon if required.

nametaken Sat 04-Oct-08 18:39:59

i wouldn't go either

HappyMummyOfOne Sat 04-Oct-08 18:44:13

I agree, too late for that age.

We have a ball play one tomorrow from 9-11am, I thought that was a funny time for a ball party with mcdonalds type meal.
