We've been talking about parties all month long and we'd like your opinion on invitation etiquette. With everyone so busy these days and trying to balance ballet practice with basketball tournaments, how early do you hope to get an invite for an event you're expected to attend? Do you drop everything for late notices or say sorry, maybe next time?

Although it's easy to want your children to be able to attend every party they're invited too, sometimes it's easier to say no when invitations arrive late and you already have something penciled in on the calender. So we're asking you...

How far in advance do you appreciate invitations being sent out? If they arrive too early do you lose them and forget? Too late and can't make time? Share your thoughts on how soon you think they should be hitting the mailbox in the comments below!
