Ds1 is 4 in a couple of weeks. I invited his friends a few weeks ago, including two children from his nursery that he specifically mentioned that he wanted to invite. We have just recieved an invitation to another child's party the week before his. The child is at nursery, but a full year younger than ds1 and he has never mentioned him to me before. We will go to the child's party, but what I want to know is: should I now invite him to my son's one? I have not just invited any children from nursery to his one, but specifically the two he asked for.
When my DD was younger we used to invite all of the girls in her class (to a disco or whatever) so that nobody was left out but we wouldn't then expect her to be invited to everyone elses party because understand that people have to set a limit depending on the type of party/size of house/size of extended family etc. But because of the time factor in this case I would say yes, invite the child.
