My DS 5 yr old has been invited for the first time to a little class mates house after school tomorrow. I barely know the mum and have only spoken a handful of times since school started in February. I assumed I would be going together with my 2 youngest.
I just received a text saying she would pick up and drop off my DS. I nearly fell over! I am just not going to allow that to happen but am unsure of how to word it without offending. Not only that my DS hates drop offs, and would have no idea who the mum is.
I would ring
her and say "Im so sorry, but I misunderstood about the playdate as this is DS's first. He freaks out if I am not around, so maybe we can go to a park together so the boys can play?"
That way you can take your other kids and you can get to know this lady and so can your DS.
Just take lots of shares food seeing you are rearranging it all.
If she isnt accomodating then dont worry, thats her choice. If your DS knows about it, then take him to the park anyway.
