How do other mums handle birthday invites? – I have promised my son a little birthday party gathering at an indoor play-centre, he’s turning 4. I don’t really know the other Mums that well but have given invites to 3 or 4 other little boys (from his playgroup) to come. Ideally, I would have loved to invite the whole group, but for financial reasons (and Christmas just around the corner) can only really have 10 or 11 kids there (including 2 cousins & 2 close family friends). I was wondering how other mums felt, am feeling a little awkward.
