playdate i was rejected ?? arent parents supposed to stay?
I am a working class full time employed twenty something mom living in a rich upper class sahm neighborhood. I live beyond my means in a cramped apt. I don't have designer duds or a bentley to chauffeur dd in. She is the sweetest child ever. she was invited to a few play dates and I feel as though the moms find me inferior. Today I took her to her friends mansion in the gated community a few miles from our apt. Upon arrival I escorted Ginny in, expecting to stay for the duration of the play date. After a brief conversation about girl scouts her teacher etc her friends mom frankly informed me I was to pick her up at 6 pm. I then left ..confused because I believed that in playdates the parent was to stay the entire time and chit chat with the other parent. I suppose she did not want me for company ? am I overreacting ? she is 7 yo btw.
