my ds who is 7(year 2) has been best friends with the some boy since reception. I know the other boy's family and we've been round to each other houses for play dates too. I like his mum and have no troubles.

my son has recently started asking me to organize a sleepover for the two of them but i don't know if i should, since i think he's rather young but at the same time I don't want to be a fun killer. i have the impression that the other mum who I am friends with is up for it. i don't mind where the sleepover is held, ours or theirs so that;s not the question. my worry is the age.

any advice is welcome smile TIA

It seemed to get more normal in yr3 at my child's school.

If both boys are asking for a sleepover and you're ok with it then why does the age bother you?
Has your ds stayed at grandparents or done a sleepover with beavers or will this be his first time?
The first time will be a bit of a worry all round but keep your phone on if your ds goes to his friend or be prepared for a late night early morning if the boys stay at yours!
Let them have fun and don't be so hung up on their age!

My ds age 7 has slept over at a friends a couple of times, he wasn't up particularly late (around 10.30) but was shattered and moody for a couple days after. He loved it at the time though
