The Lounge The Lounge

 The neighborhood kids decide to hang out in my yard, no big deal. and my oldest dd went out there to play as well.  well there is this girl out there that I have never met and she and my oldest are in the same class.  Well this girl starts to yell at my dd and said she don't want her around and she doesn't want my dd to play outside with her or the other kids because she heard (gossip) that my dd doesn't like her.  My dd comes back in crying about it.  I heard most of it but didn't think anything of it until she came in crying.  Mama bear kicked in and I am usually one that lets my kids handle their own battles (to and extent).  But this girl is in OUR yard and has no right to it.  My dd didn't want me going out there yelling but I wasn't gonna let this lil girl think she owns my yard.  So I went out there telling them that I don't want any fighting or everyone can leave my yard.  I asked who 'Larissa' is and the other kids pointed her out and I said that I don't know who you think you are but unless you hear first hand from my dd's mouth than you can't count on it being true, that's all it is is gossip.  This is our yard and if you can't abide by MY rules than you can leave.  And then I walked back in.

ok thanks for letting me get that out

 sadly no but I would have been pissed if her mom came back and yelled at me about yelling at her daughter.  some moms are like that.

My mom is the type to yell at me for making an other adult yell at me. She would be too embarrassed to let me go over there again
