She won't let me come over

I just moved into a new area. My kids made friends with a little boy up the street. I walked up there and introduced myself to the mom. She seemed nice if a little chatty. She gave me her whole life story in one sitting. Her husband came home and she went inside. He started talking to me and asked about my kids' heritage. I noticed he kept staring at me even when he was talking to his son. Over the next few days I came over and chatted with the mom. It was nice to make a mommy friend. Every time her husband came home he would stay outside to talk to me while she made dinner. 
I noticed the little boy was outside playing by himself. Usually his mom is out there with him. I came over and asked if his mom was alright because she told me she had a medical condition and he told me his mom was laying down cause she wasn't feeling well. His dad pulled up and I told him that his wife could always let their son come to my house when she wasn't feeling well. Then I went home.
Today her husband offer to buy me some ice cream and I said no thanks. (We were all at the ice cream truck) She pulled me to the side and said she saw me talking to her husband. I told her that I was concerned about her and told him when ever she wanted her son can come to my house. She told me to stay away from her husband because she didn't feel like fighting another woman for her man. That he use to just come home and sit on the couch and now he stayed outside to talk to me and I was asking for trouble by the way I dressed. I looked at her dumbfounded and reminded her that I was married with children. She said my kids could still come over but not me. 
I am really surprised by this. I mean every time I talked to her husband it was about her or their kid. 
I asked my dh if I dressed slutty or something and he said no but I did just have a baby recently so my breasts look like they were gonna explode out of my tops. 
 I won't let my kids go to a house that I was not allow to go too but I don't want to lose their new friend.

Any advice?

I am trying to find a way to tell my kids gently that they cannot go to their friends house because their mom is paranoid.

Sometimes it's hard to make new friends when they are married. When (if) i make a new friend i try not to even make eye contract with their husbands. It's a great rule of thumb. You should never even pursue a genuine friendship with the husband of a friends. Hi and Bye will be your best bet dear! Good luck

find other things for your kid to do for a little while. maybe he will get used to not playing with the other kid. that woman sounds pyscho and her husband seems like a scum bag.
