I'm looking for a nice way to invite a friend of my ds to come to our home for a playdate but not having the parent stay over. We' ve done it a couple of times in the past with another family and they totally got the point, we always get the point too, but for some reason this mom that I was talking too and mention that I may invite her son to come over for a playdate, I got the feeling that she wants to stay over too. They are 7 years old and I think they can handle this, I know the mom from school and we have a good relationship together, but I already have a 2 year old staying home with me and just don't feel having to host the playdate, look over my 2 year old and entertain the mom at the same time. It seems like a lot, I want this playdate to happen but not have to entertain the mom. What is a nice way to put that out in the invitation?
Ps: Staying for a coffee or tea is ok with me, but not for the 3 whole hours. She also knows that my husband works ou of town and I'll be by myself, so no reason to stress for not knowing who is going to be over at my place at the time of the playdate.
