Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Better way to have handled this?

Our next-door-neighbor's dd (6)came over w/ something to give to our dd (8).  I have heard the kids say they are allowed to play in our yard, but not come in the house.  We respect Mom & Dad's wishes on this.  Anyway, I stood in the open door while calling our dd over.  Didn't feel polite to close it on the kid.  Kid walks in, starts looking @ our turtle & rabbits that we have in the living room.  I asked her if she was allowed in the house, & told her I didn't want her in trouble w/ Mom & Dad.  "No, I'll just stay a min or two."   Don't wanna make her feel unwelcome, but also don't wanna get in trouble w/ her parents for doing something she's not s'posed to do.

Perhaps you should have said flat out that you'd heard her say she wasn't allowed to come in the house and that she'd have to get permission (next time?) to make sure it was ok.
