Yesterday was the kids' school carnival. I was volunteering most of the time we where there, and DH was stuck chasing after the kiddos. At one point one of PS's friend's mom came up to me and told me what a great job I was doing with her. Her daughter was new to the school at the end of last year, and had a tough time fitting in. PS was kind to her and became one of her first friends. The other mom was tearing up telling me about it. I was one proud momma.
Meanwhile Pushy Mom managed to invite her younger DD over to my house after the carnival. Both of our older girls were invited to a birthday party after the carnival, and she dropped them off. I was really tempted to not allow her to invite her child over, simply to make a point, but we weren't really doing anything and I knew my kids would have fun, so I went with it.
When she arrived to pick up her DD, she brought her dog. Not like a little chihuahua in a purse, a 60 lb. chocolate lab. As soon as I opened the door, the dog came zooming in the house. Good thing I didn't have my own dog in the house, I have no idea how Bob would have reacted. The dog proceeded to sniff out the entire downstairs. Then the kids opened the front door, and the dog raced back outside. Of course, one of my neighbors happened to be walking her golden retriever right in front of my house at that very moment, and chaos ensued. I'm beginning to think that Pushy Mom is not playing with a full deck. Who just brings their unleashed dog over to explore someone's house?
