I find it hard to invite certain kids to parties because I feel badly not inviting their siblings. Sometimes it is ok but when you
get bigger sibling sets, it's hard! that's a lot of different ages and supplies for those kids.
So what is normal?
I'm always worried I will upset the kid/s, parents, or gve the parents tantruming kids to deal with because the other kid gets to
go and there are kid/s left out who are sad.
But it gets a bit ridiculous after a while - I mean, dd has a friend who has a sister dd2's age, so I don't mind that as I'm friends with
their mom. But then there's the fact ds wants to invite a friend to dd's party: well, dd plays with the friend's brother, so she suggested
we invite him, too, but that leaves the third child out so I suppose I should invite him, right.
And so on, and so forth
So how do you figure it out? Do you give your kid a set number of kids to invite, and do siblings count?
Do you figure it's up to the parents to deal with the upset children who are left out?
Or do you just suck it up and invite the whole family and deal with it?
I don't want to be too cheap, or mean, or offend anyone. But I also find every single year the #'s grow lol and it's getting a bit
