Summer Birthday Party?

My son got a birthday invitation for a party on a Wednesday at 2pm. I was a little taken a back even though it's summer, but most people I know are very busy during the week. He has preschool 3 days a week mon-Tues-Fri. I'm a SAHM but I would have to pull him out of preschool to take him to this party. My son is 3 so I'm not familiar with the birthday etiquette for summer parties. Is it ok to have parties during the week?

  • As a working mother, I think it's terrible. Honestly I have not had many. I don't think this is a common thing.

  • Funny you should mention this.... my 6 yr DD old just received an invite for a b-day party... 2-4 on a Tue.... From what I see it's pretty standard.

  • Honestly, if its a prob, don't go. Your kid won't even realized he missed anything.
