So, my 7 year-old goes to daycare and school. A lot of kids from his school go to his daycare after school and it seems like every week he brings home a slip of paper with someone's phone number on it or a birthday party invitation. The last two weekends we've played with two different friends and had a friend spend the night with us. We have another phone number and another birthday party this weekend. (idk if we are going or not) When my DH picked him up from daycare one of his friends asked if he could go to church with him on Sunday, then another friend piped in and said "my church has free doughnuts" as if to lure my son to come to his church instead (LOL). I'm just not used to all this. This is the first year we've had all these friends and invitations here, there and everywhere. I dont want all my weekends to be taken up in his social life, but I certainly want him to have a social life none-the-less, so I usually end up letting him have friends over or going to the party. How do you balance it all?
