Situation of DD invited friend's party and SD wanting to go too..
Maybe you can help me out with this situation and the many I see like it that may come up in the future.
I have a DD8 and a SD8. DH and I are custodial parents, BM lives out of state. SD has lived with us since the beginning of summer break.
DD is a social butterfly and gets invited to everything, most recently one of her best friends at school's birthday party (it's being held somewhere where you have to pay per child). Immediately upon seeing the invite SD got excited because she and DD were going to a birthday party.
I'd planned on calling the host mom and asking if she minds my SD coming along with her sister and that I would pay the costs associated with an extra child. Do you think I should do that? DD hasn't come flat out and said it, but I feel like she wants to go to the party alone and be with "her" friends.
Should I ask DD's opinion or should I just try to see if she can attend the party as well? And how to deal in the future in regards to sleepovers and things like that? SD hasn't made any friends in school yet so I hate to have her feel left out, however I want DD to have some time with her friends as well.
