DD has a really good friend who lives within walking distance from our home, the girls go to different schools and because of DD's 1 weekend out of 2 at her dad's and DD's friend going away to her cottage most weekends, the girls don't get to see each other that much.
That being said, whenever the girls get together they are great. So Thrusday after school , DH and DD went for a walk together and as they walked in front of DD's friend's house, they were spotted and invited to play by the girl, and DH was invited in the house for a beer. FFW to 5pm I go to pick them up after work, so the adults chat while the kids play, DD asks me if her BFF can come and eat dinner at our house, I say yes, the girls are extatic.
Anywho ... the mom tells me she wants to show me something and shows me some special lights she got and music thingy which I don't really care for or don't get why she's showing it to me, she then proceeds to tell me that her DD is having a "disco / slumber party" this weekend. Then she tells me that my DD is not invited because she's an early riser. And she really doesn't want my DD to wake everyone up early in the morning. She said her daughter was really hurt and wanted to invite DD but the mom didn't want to risk a bunch of girls running around at 6am on Saturday morning.
I was kinda stunned. I mean, I don't know, I could have talked to DD, set some ground rules, I could have brought her to the party but taken her home for the night... there was 100 different solutions to this. I thnk deep down I wish the mom had not told me about it, I salute her for the honesty but I find it lacked tact as well. I find it incredibly sad for DD.
