DD goes to sleep earlier nowadays, which is fine during the week, but on the weekends we've been invited over to friends' houses for dinners/BBQs with the baby and DH always freaks out that we won't be home in time to put DD to bed so we either have to leave early or we just don't go. My parents took me everywhere as a baby and, according to them, I slept everywhere. So, they would go over to friends' houses and I would sleep in their bedrooms. I don't want DD's schedule to completely run our lives and I'm feeling a little sheltered. I know children change things but I don't think bringing her Rock N Play to a party and sticking her in someone's bedroom for a few hours past bedtime will kill her. I'd like her to become familiar sleeping in strange places since I"m hoping to travel more with her down the road. She's a pretty good sleeper but, as I posted earlier, she does fuss when she's going down. She's been getting better these last few nights. Are we horrible parents for not fully adapting to her schedule so we can have a good time?
ETA: I should add that we've coped with this so far by inviting people to our house so we can put DD to bed and hang out with our friends. DH is a homebody anyway so this is his ideal situation but I like to get out of the house more which is why I'm struggling with this more, I guess.
