Trey was invited to a birthday party by a kid in his class at daycare. We RSVPed a couple weeks ago. Its a backyard party with one of those blow up waterslide (the smaller one, for their age) on Saturday afternoon. Anyway, my brother & 3 year old nephew are in town. They were supposed to be leaving Saturday morning, but now are staying until Sunday.
Would it be rude of me to call these people and ask if they minded if they came? Would you do it, or is that too forward? I just kind of feel bad leaving my nephew behind while Trey goes to a birthday party...and i can't cancel now, since i already RSVPed.
I would just call and ask if they can come. Its a backyard party and doesnt seem like a situation where there would be a limit on kids or where they would have to pay more if he participated. And like most parties, they will probably have someone not show up at the last minute anyways.
I would call and ask. It's probably no trouble. My hugest pet peeve with Daryn's bday parties was the siblings that tagged along WITHOUT ASKING! I always put together a couple of extra loot bags just in case but I remember one memorable party where we had rented some time at a ranch and a couple of horses where I think 5 extra kids came along. I was ticked right off. In your situation, I would totally have understood. Actually I wouldn't have needed an explanation, just the heads up so I could make sure there was enough food.
I was going to say the same as Robin. I was watching my niece for a few days in Oct (her mom was in an accident). Ava was invited to a halloween party (sibings invited). I emailed the host and asked if my niece could come and she was more than happy to have her.
