Dd6 was invited to spend the night at a neighbor's, who have a dd the same age. We're fairly new to the neighborhood and were invited to the girl's bday party last week. The mom is really sweet and the girl seems nice, but they live with her mom, who must smoke 2 packs a day and has the mouth of a sailor. The lil girl's mom mentioned that she actually has 4 kids, but this has been the 1st one she's been able to raise....so she has some kind of fishy past, and this baby daddy is in n out of prison.
Simply put, even tho mom & dd are sweet, they're not ppl I'd like to get to know really well, and I'm not comfortable leaving my dd there over night. How do I gently tell her that? We see each other every day at the kids' bus stop, so I don't want to hurt her feelings and things get real awkward.
