Toddler birthday - who to invite?
March 28, 2014 1:08 PM Subscribe
My daughter is almost three. For her birthday, I'd like to invite three or four kids. We are planning two organised activities (involving balloons and street crayons), but leaving it mostly unstructured for one or two hours, and with plenty of afternoon snacks.

The only really necessary invitee is the neighbour's daughter, who Toddler Nom gets along with like a house on fire and sees all the time.
Then there is a little boy from a mom and kid group we go to infrequently that she likes, who might be a good fit
The rest (kindergarten friends, for instance, or children of my friends) are all equally acquaintances but not really friends, since my daughter is introverted and tends to watch more than interact, especially with groups.
Should I just invite two kids whose mothers I like? One from each social circle, or should I try to keep them from one social circle? Is this even important for my kid, who I invite?
Her kindergarten teacher said maybe one of the quiet kids, like X or Y, but she doesn't seem particularly friendly with either of these.
