So it is difficult for me to find other Mommy friends for various reasons--ages of parents, ages of kids, sex of kids, etc., but there is this little boy that my daughter grew up with basically and are really good friends, anyway, so we went to their house for a playdate and the snacks were just fully loaded with sugar and the lunch that she served consisted of mini hot dogs and bagel bites. I just always try to hit the 4 food groups with each meal and reduce the amount of sugar they get throughout the day.
Should I say something or just brush it off?
I did bring them water and snacks if they wanted something and planned on leaving before lunch but they pleaded with us to stay until the other kids arrived.
UPDATE: I got the point and usually stop reading after 20 replies.
LOL!! LOL!! WOW!! Blaming that on her OWN MOM?? I'm glad you owned up to it! ( :
She blamed it on her own mom haha it wasn't till about couple weeks later that I brought it up again and couldn't keep a straight face :) I wanted her to know I was the brains behind it
ROFL!! ROFL!! That is SO FUNNY--the bag of treats!!! That is GREAT! How did they not figure out it was you that did it? Just wondering.
Ppl are weird! I think they lose sight on their good memories or the good memories they could be making with their own... They are so caught up on trying to be perfect lol its sad!
For my cousins LOs bday I gave time a bag with nothing but treats and left it unsigned haha she was pretty pissed but everyone else had a good laugh about it :)
Your cousin sounds like my cousin's WIFE!!! She is SO WEIRD!!! Her kids RARELY EVER get treats!! She lets them go Trick or Treating, but when they get home from getting the candy, they are allowed ONLY 5 pieces of candy to keep and the rest of the candy gets thrown in the trash!!!! I'm like SERIOUSLY?? What the heck is the point of going Trick or Treating if 99% of the candy is going to be thrown away??? I mean I don't let my kids just sit there and eat ALL of their Halloween candy in one sitting! We let them have some candy on Halloween. Then we put up their candy where they cannot get to it. We give them a few pieces each day, until the candy is gone!
Just let it go... If it didn't kill us growing up it won't kill them :)
I have a cousin who won't let her son have anything other than healthy snacks and food and honestly I find it a lil annoying... Let them have a lil something on special occasions, holidays, bdays...
One of my dd's friend's mom always asked me to bring a lunch for my dd when they had a playdate. I wasn't offended by it.
Why don't you bring a lunch for your dd next time you have a playdate? If they ask why, just say uour dd is a very picky eater, and it's just easier if you bring food for her.
How insulting to the playdate mother.
Being asked to bring a lunch or snack is a lot different than taking a lunch or snack when you have not been asked to. If you take a lunch without being asked, you are insulting the playdate mother who has gone out of her way to provide lunch or a snack for the children. Seriously, how hard is that for you to understand?
Meh. It's one day. I would just let it go. Now if you ate lunch over there all the time then maybe avoid the lunch hour. However, like I said one day of having mini corndogs and bagle bites aren't going to throw the kid over the edge, especially if you normally eat healthy.
