Question for you

My oldest will be 8 in a month.

(So weird. I know.)

She will be baptized a couple of weeks later.

My question is this:

Is it appropriate to send out invites to a baptism?

(because I'm just that kind of mom.)

My mom did for all of us.

We made sure school teachers got a paper invitation to the event. It is a big deal!

First Communion and Bar Mitzvahs send out invites and throw a great party afterwards around here!

I always get them when my relatives are baptized.

Yes!

Totally. I'm planning to when LP turns 8. (Next year! Omigosh! Next year!)

Yes! We've sent out invitations for our 3 oldest kid's baptisms, and in a few years we'll send them out for our youngest.

I would think so---as long as they're appropriate. You know, maybe don't put balloons and excalmations all over the place:)

I never have beyond phone calls and e-mails--but then I know I'd lock myself into feeling like I have to do it every time. (In other words, I'm lazy.)

But I say go for it.

Yes definitely! Great missionary moment.

Yes. Be the mom you are. I can't believe our girls are turning eight this year!

well since my last kid was 8 ---18 years ago......I am not in the "loop" of what is ok and not ok anymore.
things change all the time. but it is a special day........and so familyh and friends may want to know and share that time with her. (or is it a him?)
