can I invite my son over to someones house

my son's and hi friend are both 5 yrs old and went to Pre_K this past school year.I do not know the boys mom but I know the grandma. Actually I knew the grandma for years and so has dh. I then ran into the grandma during a parents activity day...and thought it was really neat that my son and her grandson were so close.
She told me to feel free to drop my son off at her house, where her grandson lives, anytime I need a break. She went on to say that since they live so far out in the country he has nobody to play with.
So if she said that I am free to drop him off anytime...that leaves the door open for me to call her and ask if my son can play over right?..
we live in a very small town...I live in town and there isn't anybody for my son to play with except girls, and he won't play with girls...this boy is 12 miles into the country and has nobody but grandma and horses.

  • People don't normally offer for kids to come over to play if they don't mean it! Just call and say "hey, I wanted to see when would be a good time for you that the kids could play?" It is always a good idea to offer to reciprocate, even if they don't take you up on it...

  • I don't see why not. I would just call before i went to make sure everything was fine.

  • call em up and see what they are doing on a specific day. Ask grandma if she minds the 2 of you coming for a visit. Then ask if your son's friend can come play, the next time. After that she should offer the same.

  • I would try to trade off. Tell her a day oyou have open and the next week invite her grandchild to your house.
