I just don't understand why Mums just can't be friends with each other, you know, just pass the time of day, they don't have to be besties, but why be nasty?
I guess maybe I do know the answer - these Mums have nothing else in their lives so the weekly playgroup is a big social occasion, I don't know.
It just winds me up - yesterday Miss popular who comes across like she is so much better than everyone else, is holding court with other Mums telling them how this new Mum to playgroup had tried to talk to her in the supermarket, and she had practically had to run away to get her to take the hint that she didn't want to talk to her.
WTF! There is no need, yep you don't have to go crazy and organise playdates, but you can just say Hi and leave it at that, no need to mean about it.
The mum in question is possibly a little unfortunate, but I know she suffered badly with PND after her son who is now only a year old, and is fairly new to town.
Why can't people just be nice to each other? We are all here in the world trying to raise our children and do the best by our families, why do they have to be so mean?
