Never one to be left out.....
A wallflower my child is not. I got a phone call this evening on my ride home from work. Apparently my dd had gone up to her friend and classmate and told him that she needed to spend Thanksgiving week Monday and Tuesday at his house. ? So of course, being the sweet little boy that he is (and he is a doll) he went home and told his momma that my kid needed to come to their house on those days. So his momma was calling me to find out what days she would like to come over. God I love my neighbors, they rock. I had, of course, already asked my mother if she could take care of her (even though I can't stand the woman I have less choices sometimes). Made sure the kid was ok with it and figured it was all hunky dory. Why do schools give kids an entire week of for a 1 day holiday? Do they think everyone has an at home parent? I have this funny feeling that my kid is starting to understand why I hate my mom, I think she doesn't like my mom all that much either. I don't talk badly about her in front of the kid but I make sure she doesn't believe everything my mom says. Mom makes promises she doesn't keep and it's hard to sugar coat it and not tell the kid that grandma is lying. Plus grandma can be a mean ass bitch to her just like she's always been to me. You can't hide that from a kid.
So I guess he kid took matters in her own hands and re did her schedule. I had to call the dh and let him know that we are obviously nothing but a hinderance to our much more well connected child. I can't see her being the one not invited to a party in her high school years. No no, she'll probably show up and take center stage at most of them, no being left out for this Diva. So as of today we've decided she has very little use for us, she can obviously take care of herself. Ah parenthood, didn't think we'd be outdated so soon.
