Just got an invite for a b-day party for ds2.

At 3:30 on a school day.

I have to say - this is a new one for me...

Would this be normal in your area?

Do you live in an area with mostly sahms? Here parties are almost always on weekends...

No - mostly working moms here...

I kept checking my calendar to see if the date was wrong - as I've never heard of a weekday party before! :)

in pre-school I did - once they got to grade school no.   I'm a SAHM.   But I work too - I just don't make enough money to talk about.

Not to mention - what are mom's who do go going to do with siblings?

It is not like both parents are likely to be home at that time...

The invite was for my 5 year old - not both of my kiddos.

Maybe the mom was clueless?? Or the party venue was super cheap on a weekday afternoon??

If I do a party on a Friday it's at 7pm & will always be a sleepover so parents don't have to come out at 9/10pm to pick up. We try not to do Saturday sleepovers unless it's 1 or 2 kids because we attend church Sundays.
