In need of a little advice this morning! My friend's little sister just sent us an invite to her son's first birthday party. I went out and bought him a gift, then looked at the invite details and realized the party is an hour away. We run a tight ship in our house in regards to naps and feedings; otherwise we risk a meltdown. Because of the party being such a distance, there's no way to attend without disrupting DD's nap schedule. I think I'm going to have to RSVP no and just explain the situation, hoping she'll understand. I do plan on giving her the gift either way, but my question is: am I being uptight? Should I just suck it up? Or would you all understand if you were her?
For context: I don't have a friendship with this girl although I have known her since she was little and we did have a play date a few months back (our LO's are 2 months apart).
