Communication, communication, communication! Between the adults! Let her know that anything she tells you, you are going to ask the other mom about! And make sure you follow through (and vice-versa). Also, make sure she has consequences for her actions (loss of privileges, grounding, etc.). You are wise to nip this in the bud because it will only get worse as she gets older. Also, it is not good for her to think she is "getting one over" on the adults.

You and mom keep communicating. Once the child knows you are united in doing what is best and won't play the game the child will quit.
