In the week previous to this... I'd had coffee down town with a group of the new mums to introduce myself, say hi and get to know them a little. So all is good til the invites!
On the morning dd gave the invites out.... one of the mums that was at the coffee group was also at the class. She watched dd give them out, and looked EXTREMELY p'd off when her little boy didn't get one. Well.... for starters he's a boy... and dd hasn't really made friends with him in fact they've shown no interest in each other whatsoever so its hardly surprising that dd didn't choose him.
I'm kind of amused that this mother has gone from being super friendly to giving me stone cold glares every time I see her now! I feel like she's being a bit ridiculous!
The other thing is... the party was at the local pool. I felt responsible for the kids and didn't want too many to watch. As it was most of the parents stayed anyway as I'd told them they're more than welcome to considering its water.... but there were still some parents that chose not to come... and two of the kids were brought by their dads who sat & chatted without once looking up. So I was glad that the whole class wasn't invited as I had enough children to watch as it was! There were 12 kids all up and including dd I had 5 kids to watch.
Do you agree with me or do you think that because I had coffee with this mum that I should have invited her son?
