I forgot to RSVP...

I forgot to RSVP to my son's friend's party & I cannot find the invitation. : / The party is in an hour.

Usually I'm good at remembering such things but SO just deployed so my head has been a scrambled mess the last couple weeks. The party is at the theater on base, so the movies are free for everyone so its not like they'd have to suddenly buy another ticket.

Would it be rude of us to show up? This is Elijah's best friend at school, so it'd be a nice opportunity for me to meet his parents & set up potential play dates.

***The boys are five, btw.

I personally would be thrilled if it were my childs best friend that came to the party.  I say go.

Right, I understand. Thats not even a big deal to us. I just want Elijah to go & have a good time with his friend. I thought if anything they could still watch the movie together.

I would still go.  An hour before is too late to RSVP anyway.

I would go, apologize for not RSVPing, explain that since your SO recently deployed you have been scatter brained.

 i just think its funny that if this is your DSs BFF why the mom didnt call to confirm.    thats just me.  not sure how old your DS is.

but if it were me i would not be thrilled nor slightly amused you showed up, but wouldnt make a scene because it was my kids birthday.

i have witnessed kids and their parents being asked to leave parties because of this

I hate to use that as an excuse, but its the truth. lol His dad is military so hopefully they'll understand.

It is rude to not RSVP and then show up BUT I think you can still go and apologize for not RSVPing. Can you at least call the parent to see if its alright to still come? As for goody bags and such, people usually have a couple of extra so I wouldn't worry about that.
