Re: Play date etiquette ??
Normally at 6 I would think the invite would be just for her and you. Usually by that age kids have friendships on a more personal level. With littler kids the invite is usually for everyone. Obviously given the situation you need to go. If you don't have anyone to watch your other littles. You need to clarify with the other mom that it's okay to bring them. I know how my house looks after a play date with 3 kids and a meal for the moms. It's a lot of work. Even when they help clean up. If I invited over one little girl and 4 more kids showed up I'd be a bit annoyed. If the mom told me a head of time I could prepare better.
