What do you do when you make a mom friend and then she does something icky but your kids are friends so you can't really extricate yourself from the friendship? I hesitate to ask since it makes me look unkind but I figured the OBM community would understand.
Well, shit. I am totally with you on the OBM community being understanding of this scenario...I believe it can happen and I don't think it means you're being unkind. My instinct is that it's not worth it to keep having play dates with a family you have a major problem with, whether or not your kids are friends. If you do feel like you want or need to stay friends with them for the sake of your kids, I'm thinking you probably need to actually talk through the "icky" thing with the mom so that hopefully (1) you can get over it and not feel crappy every time you see her, and (2) it doesn't happen again.
But it sounds like a tough situation regardless.
Would love for others to chime in!
