SO I was home with my son today... I normally work outside the home. We went to McDonalds playland which he has so much fun with, until he turned 3 and switched daycare settings, he had major social anxiety even for a 3 year old.. well we get there and 2 mom's were talking.. clearly were the "money" stay at home mom's.., I don't mean that rude,but most mom's who don't have money or are sahm's know that type I am talking about.. well my son for the first time I've ever seen walked up to their kids ( there were 4 total between the 2 of them ) and said HI, My name is Max.. I totally teared up as this is HUGE on my son's part.. well the one mom of the 3 of them told her kids to Not talk to him, go play or they will be leaving.. my son was SO proud of himself for talking to other kids he ran to give me a high five but didn't know why now they had to go since he talked to them.. I am not the made up - hair done makeup done Mom and my mom says she used to get denied or not talked to by other moms for this reason too - I actually tried to talk to them when our kids were close to each other and got snubbed,. this also happens at the park when I talk to mom's on the weekends or randomly if I am off during the week and they find out I stay at home... I am sooo sad about this.. I am a nice person and my son really needs this interaction but we can't seem to break this barrier...

I get this a lot at the mall play area, snotty little girls and their snotty moms. My 4 year old isn't as bothered by it as I am. When I see her get shut down my some other kid I just say "if they are snotty and rude then you don't want to play with them anyway" and remind her to be a nice person and not be snotty herself. I guess it is just a part of life, a crappy part but a part of life we have to deal with.
