    How old are they? It’s  pretty expensive to get a sitter for just one child, so for 3, it just may cost too much for her.

    Can her husband look after the kids, regardless, that is not really your problem, it is totally ok for you to ask her to not bring kids, i would put adults only on the invites!

    Honestly, I think it’s a waste of money for her to get a sitter to come try on bridesmaid dresses and to hang out at your house to assemble invitiations.  But, I would also hope that she would recognize that a bachelorette party absolutely is not the place for a child.  Could you ask one of your other BMs to quietly ask her about not bringing the kids to the bachelorette party?  That way it’s one of the hosts of the event requesting it, not you.

    If shes old enough to have an eight year old, she’s old enough to know kids don’t co e to showers.

    Where is the husband in all this? All of our male friends hang with their kids while their wives are doing things like this.

    A babysitter isn’t the only option. I also am going through the same issue with a friend, and she is the same brings her kids everywhere, even if her husband is at home. I do think someome should pull her aside and let her know those events are adult only. Hopefully for the bachlorette perhaps you guys are going somewhere like a bar or something where kids aren’t allowed.

    I’d just ask her to not bring them to the shower.

    My best friend has 8 kids!, i don’t even have to ask her to not bring them to the wedding, she just knows what i want (I have 4 of my own) they have come along to most things too but, not all. 

    I’m sure she realizes that it won’t be a good idea to bring her kids to your shower or bachelorette party.

    @Mrs. Mink:   We always have the little girls in the family at showers, so she may be one who will want to bring her daughters. I see nothing wrong with having children there.They don’t belong at the batchelorette,tho, and if the Mom has half a brain, she won’t even consider it.

    OP…maybe the things you’ve mentioned are ones where she thought would be short and sweet and she just wasn’t thinking about how they’d be. Not an excuse, but it happens.

    I’d stress to all that your upcoming events are adults only if that’s what you’d prefer, and maybe she’ll get the hint. If not, have one of your other friends tell her outright.
