The birthday of DD’s friend is coming up and the mom wants to organize a picnic get together for 4 friends. This is a great idea, except that the friend’s mom usually gets very insecure in front of people she likes to impress (like the two other moms). So I already know that she will use this opportunity to tear me down in front of these women, and I don’t even know them. so it will be very embarrassing for me and I don’t want to subject myself. DD is almost 13.
