[ - ] My DD and another girl play together often at school. Finally had a playdate at our home after a year of being in the same class. The mother is friends with a couple of my friends. She also has a younger child the same age as our younger child. She's a bit cold but I am always very friendly with her. She sort of has a superior attitude too, but I do like to give people the benefit of the doubt. So for the second play date, I asked her if she'd like to come over with her younger child, knowing we have the same friends and we see eachother all the time. She brushed it off and said "oh, no no no. Our DD likes to play alone with her friends without me there." However, I know she has playdates and stays with my other friends. I'm not sure why she's like this with me. Thoughts? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
