@TheLawrenceBride:  People can only take advantage of you to the extent that you let them. Stop letting her take advantage of you. Next time she or the girls suggest a sleepover at your house, tell her/them that it’s her turn to host. Stop buying things for her bogus claims.

@TheLawrenceBride:  it sounds like your friend is a user, and an opportunist. After the way she handled the clothing situation and saw how willing you were to buy new clothes, I wouldn’t be surprised if she is trying to get her walls touched up at your expense.

It also sounds like her daughter has a whole host of behavior habits I would NOT rubbing off on my own kids. I see zero benefit in this entire situation for anyone and thus I would cease having playdates in my home with this friend/daughter, no question.

VENT away sister! Sounds like you could use a bit of a break from your friend. WHich is okay. Doesn’t make either of you bad people. But a bit of a break might do you both good then you can start a bit fresh and maybe go back to a more regular give and take as the kids go. Deep Breaths (and a glass of wine…) and Good Luck!

This woman sounds like a PITA.  Sorry for all you’re going through!  I think you’ll be happiest if you start putting your foot down with this woman.

@julies1949:  +1. You said it a lot more succinctly than I would have.
