We are taking my daughter out for her birthday dinner tomorrow night and I had told her she could invite one friend. Well, the friend she wants to come is very...ummm...shy....clingy? I don't know....she has a hard time going anywhere without her mom. Or maybe, her mom has a hard time letting her go anywhere. I don't know. So anyway, the friend really wants to come out to dinner with us then back to the house for cake, ice cream, and presents. I call he rmom, who basically is planning to go with us as she thinks her daughter will want her there. Well, I was planning to treat my daughter's friend....surely, the mom wouldn't expect me to pay for her meal as well? What do you guys think? And how do I handle a potentially awkward situation?
