Part of this is really my issue as a person. Something I struggle with as a parent. I adore my children, but in general I don't like other people's kids all that much. And I am a very private person and I dislike letting other people into my life like that. So, I grit my teeth and I try to bear it. I try to schedule sleep overs when DH will be home because he actually likes kids! Here's how they've gone: 1.) little girl catches her foot on the tractor in the barn (not running) it is bruised and swells. I call her mom mom comes and looks at it. I had already done RICE and it was OK the girl stays. 2.) Mom and girl swear kid has no food issues but this kid was a disaster screaming running around the house being mean to our kids.... 3.) kid pees on the sofa and doesn't tell us. She gets up changes her pajamas and sleeps on another sofa. I find the wet spot in the morning when I sit on it. 4.) kid gets stung by a bee. It swells but not a huge amount. I call her mom and ask permission to give her benadryl. I warn mom and she learns from the pediatrician that the reaction is early warning of allergy and this kid now comes with an epi-pen. 5.) Disaster kid gets another chance mom still swears she is OK its a party so we have sundaes. Within minutes this kid is running around screaming and then falls on the floor in what looks like a tantrum and quickly turns into a seizure! ER visit parent etc golly gosh the kid has food allergies. (that event is another whole story!) 6.) so new kid her second overnight and she starts coughing and wheezing. I go into the living room to check on her (the girls are sleeping on the floor) and she says, "Oh I have asthma but I didn't bring an inhaler." I call mom use my inhaler on her but ask mom to come get her. Is it me? Do I have extraordinary bad luck with sleep overs????
