Getting myself into a right state about this as I don’t want to upset anyone-really hoping for some sound advice!
My son has been at nursery since just after his 2nd birthday; he is soon to have his 3rd birthday party and I’m not sure what to do about invites to the other children he’s at nursery with. Basically there’s loads of kids who go there so the nursery helpfully gave me a list of about 5 or 6 children who my son is really friendly with, I thought I’d just invite them (along with other children who we know through groups and family etc etc)
However, this week my son has received a party invite from a child who was not on the list and who I’ve not heard him mention before in terms of someone he plays with
My question is, should I reciprocate by inviting this child too, because it would be the polite thing to do, or should I continue to stick to the children on the list from nursery?
This is the first birthday party we’ve arranged and I’m really anxious to get it right and not offend anyone!!
You don't have to invite reciprically. Just invite the kids you were going to.
Good chance the other party is a while class one.
