Ok, here's the situation:
A few weeks ago we were at a get-together in our neighborhood (an outside type of thing) and my daughter and this little girl made friends. Great.
Her mom came up to me, we chatted, and after a few minutes I knew that I really really really didn't want to spend much time with this woman at all. No need to go into details, just imagine someone you don't enjoy spending time with and this was this woman for me.
She clearly didn't feel this way and was going on and on about how we should set up playdates for our girls. Seeing how much fun my daughter was having with her daughter, I said sure, only to quickly realize that she wasn't talking about drop-off playdates but let's hang out all together and invite our husbands playdates. So more like a family get-together.
The last few weeks have been busy, but now I owe her a call. And I am wondering -- do I owe to my little one to overcome my dislike for this woman so she can have a fun playdate or is this a case when I can be a little selfish and consider my own enjoyment?
I am leaning towards the latter and feeling guilt creeping up already:) (Altough I do feel like we'll have to do it at least once not to be totally rude.)
