I was in a mommy & me type class a year ago. The class was a few towns away in a church. The moms were always dressed up in expensive clothes for class, which I always thought was crazy. These women were living large. I didn’t fit in. My kid was always wearing comfortable, clean clothes, nothing special. Their kids had on super fancy clothes. I mean, these kids looked like they were going to an office. I’m just trying to set the tone here.
There was a woman who was nice and our kids played well in class, but I lost touch with her after not registering again, but she had my number. I got a text from her a few days ago asking if I wanted to go over to her place for a play date.
We went yesterday. Her house was gigantic. Her nanny was working. Her housekeeper was there too. This mom had 3 other kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, all under the age of 5. We were all in the playroom in the basement.
That’s when the trouble started. Her kids started playing a game. They said: Let’s play poor. They told my kids they were going to be the poor kids and said they were rich. They were telling my kids things like this: “Hey, poor kid, bring me my sneakers”. Then the older sister said “Hey, poor boy, you’re not taking a vacation next week?”
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I looked at the mom and she laughed. I usually mind my own business and believe me, I have been known to be politically incorrect, but this was awful. I told her this game they were playing wasn’t very nice. She told me they play it all the time & her kids just know about the reality of things. That’s when I told her we were going to get going.
So that’s my report from out in the field. Of terrible people.
