Block party at school

My oldest son is having a block party at school. He is so excited. There will be music, games, food and fun. I really want him to go.

However my youngest son has a disability. He can not stand loud noise. Crowds. Water. The list could go on and on.

I feel as though my oldest misses out on so much. My husband works all the time. I have had a few babysitters but they can just not handle my yongest.

My question is what can I do? Nobody will watch my yongest on that day and my husband has to work. My oldest truly wants to go but I dont know how we would be able to.

Send your oldest with a neighbor/classmate.

We just moved here and DS has only gone to the school a few months. I do not know anybody around here.


Quoting mjande4:

Who does your son play with at recess? Eat lunch with?  Find out and call the other parents.

Can you drop your oldest off at the party? Or as mjande suggested, send him another friend.

 Instead of hiring a sitter for your younger child, why not hire a sitter to go to the party with your older child?

Won't their be adults at the party that can keep an eye on your older child? Then you can watch your younger child.

This is what I was thinking as well.

I would explain the situation to the teacher. She may be able to suggest someone DS can buddy wuth at the party.

I was thinking the same thing before even reading the rest of the posts. 

One of the most fun days I remember growing up was when my mom had a friend take me to the fair because both she and my dad could not take off work on kiddie day
