My Nemisis...

There is a woman who lives near me that is my nemesis. I call her my "nemi" for short. Why do I have a nemi?? Let me tell you. When we first moved here her daughter and my daughter were friends. Not bestest buds just school friends. Well one day her daughter had a sleepover. At her house there are allowed boys and girls at the sleepover as she has a son and a daughter. At my house this is called a recipe for disaster and I never let my daughter sleep over there if boys were me crazy but sheesh!!! One night her daughter was having a big girls sleepover bash. My daughter was invited and asked if there were going to be boys there as well. She was promised that there weren't. Well guess what.....a bunch of boys ended up being invited. At 11pm! My daughter goes online and sends her brother an instant message that she is coming home and to let her in. The other nemi...was furious. She tells my daughter, "how will your mother know that boys were here if you don't tell her??"

What. The. Heck. Did. You. Say????!

Then she proceeds to tell every one in a 5 mile radius that I am an overprotective mother. She became enemy numero uno. I stopped talking to her and acted like she wasn't there, cause I am all mature like that and every time I would see her my friends and I would giggle and say"there goes your nemi!!" cause we are all mature like that. The other day I saw her in the store. Since it is a New Year I decide to smile at her. Not talk to her or anything, just smile. Do you know what she did???!!!! She didn't smile back. She just walked right by me!!!! Can you believe her??? When I ignore you for over a year you are supposed to pine for me and when I smile at you after said year of being ignore you are to smile back and be all happy that you may have a chance to get back in my good graces!!!! Does she not understand the way of the world???? Obviously not. Well let me tell will be a cold day in the "down there" place before she sees my pearly whites!!!! HMPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mixed sleepovers and mothers who tell my kids to lie...I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!
She is officially my nemi now as well, Tracey

I'm proud for you and your daughter. You tried to be pleasant and put the past behind you (sort of-but it counts!) and your daughter stood up for her mother's wishes. She SO could have stayed and felt guilty (or not!)

Good job Mom.
