Nothing wrong with only inviting the piano teacher.  Maybe tell your mom that it’s either tha piano teacher and her husband only or none of them.

I think your piano teacher would be shocked if her kids were invited, honestly. I think its perfectly OK to not invite them.

I wouldn’t invite the kids, and they are both old enough to not need a sitter or anything like that.  It sounds like it could be a nice night out for your piano teacher.

No to the kids.

I keep reading all of these stories where moms or MILs just seem to invite away and it drives me nuts. If my mom did it once, she would be told that if she does it again, it’s coming out of her pocket. It’s ridiculous if they’re not paying for anything! /end rant

@sarahla123:  Kids never need to be invited. And in your piano teacher’s case, they’re old enough to be left home alone or for the parents to make arrangements to look after them. Definitely ok to only invite the piano teacher and her husband. Besides, I doubt the kids would be interested in attending.

The blind relative is kind of a special case, so inviting her daughter doesn’t mean you have to invite anyone else’s kids.
