I posted this in my BMB but thought you ladies may have some good input.
It's my 5th and my 2nd bio w/DH. He's adopting my 1st 3. I have a bad relationship with his only sibling, SIL, and do not want to have visitors in the hospital. Mainly I don't want her to come when nobody else is there, but I cannot make two sets of requests for everyone, so it's easier to say no visitors in the hospital.
DH and I are in escrow for our first home. It's 60 miles away from where we are now. It's brand spankin new, gorgeous, top of the line everything. We want to host a come on over and see our new digs party but only AFTER we have completely furnished it and put in a backyard. We are in northern CA so even February will have decent weather.
My question is this: with a MTB party that far from where the guests live, would a specific start and end time be considered rude? Of course people can arrive whenever they want, but I don't want people staying crazy late.
Also, this is a new concept to me, I've never had anyone in any of my social circles do this before and haven't attended one. How far after baby's birth would this happen? I should add it's my 5th c section. I generally make quick recoveries and physically feel spry within a week afterward.
