Long story short. We have been friends for 26 years. We parted for a while but now she is back in my life. She does not have costody of her kids but i have mine. She is a drama queen, drinks alot, steals, and causes mad problems. Yet, she is fun, loving and has actually brought my self and teen daughter in a better relationship, kind, and helpful.
Thanksgiving was the worst. She was getting involved in my conversation with my childrens father, I was telling her to shut up and he was saying they are his kids and know one can tell him what to do with his kids-she began mumbling about what I should do with my teen daughter and being he don't like her he told her to MYB she jumped out of the chair and started screaming and all hell broke loose... Now I am about to say screw both of them, I don't need negativity around me. Meaning-mother and father relationship only no more Thanksgiving.
I would be very embarrassed! Sometimes we have to let our friends go. I had a childhood best-friend of 19 years. And after I had kids we lost contact. Its not because I hated her, or thought I was better. It was because our lives took different paths. That's what it sounds like yours and your friends lives are doing right now. I keep in contact with my friend, occasionally send her a message on facebook, you don't have to erase your friend out of your life. And if you do choose to keep her in your life, let her know what is not appropriate behavior when she is around you, your kids, or anyone in your family.

I think you could say to her like you just did that you don't want any negativity in your life. Maybe she will want to work on things and maybe not? But I think after a life long friendship like that you should be honest with her. Good luck!!
