She wants me to what?

I am planning a party for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I put out the invite and got a response from a friend. She is the sweetest person, but she has been known to overstep her bounds. Well... only once, but it was a big one lol.

Anyway, She asked me to reschedule the party because she has an event to attend at the same time. She asked very nicely. "I'm disappointed it's at the same time as _____________. But it's okay if that's the best time for you. It would have to be rescheduled for later because I have something else that morning." But I just kind of feel like... huh?

What do I do with this? Do I respond and tell her I'm not rescheduling? I mean, it wouldn't be a big deal for me to have it later, but the invite has already been sent. Since she is a good friend of mine do I reschedule for her?

  • I wouldn't reschedule. It's your daugther's party, not hers. I would probably tell her something like 'I regret that you are unable to make the party, as I am unable to reschedule it. But I would love for us to meet up later if possible.'

  • Do not reschedule if you already invited others for that date.

  • Do not reschedule she may be a good friend but his is YOUR CHILDS party. Plus whoever else is coming already knows it as that date and time.

  • I wouldn't reschedule. You're not going to be able to make everyone happy. Just tell her that the invites have already been sent.

  • I would not reschedule. I would tell her I'm sorry she could not make it. and if she has a child i would save her a goodie bag and give it to her the next time you see them.

  • She may be sweet, but sounds like she hasn't quite learned the lesson of boundaries yet. Don't reschedule - let her know you/daughter will miss her at birthday party.
