The school playground is like a jungle, except instead of animals, we have mums. I have touched on the subject of mums before (The annoying thing about ‘perfect’ mums (rant)) but there is one situation that keeps happening and it makes me so nervous I want to shit myself. There are several mums in my youngest child’s class that don’t get on. Either they were friends and fell or or they just don’t like each other.
There is one mum in particular that to look at you would not think she’s as ‘feisty’ as she is. She small and well put together, and appeared to keep herself to herself. But everytime she has got me on my own she wanted to bitch about the other mums. I don’t play that game, I don’t want to be involved, I don’t want to be guilty through association. I have no issues with any of the mums and I don’t want to start now. I got through the whole year with zero drama and with 3 days left of term I’m not having it fucked up now!!!
I learnt my lesson after getting involved with mums when my daughter started school it’s not worth the drama.
What was horrific about this morning, was she wasn’t just slagging off the mums, she was slagging off the KIDS. This one child in particular, who’s mum is someone you do not want to mess with. At the top of her voice saying what a horrible boy he is, mums are walking around us, his mum could turn up at any moment. I thought I was going to have a panic attack!!! I’m not overly fond of the little boy she was talking about as he he has upset my son quite a few times but I’m not stupid enough to shout about it in the playground where anyone could hear. If I heard some one slagging of my kids I’d go mad!
Nothing wrong with a bit of innocent gossip at the right time and place but this was not gossip, nor was it the right time or place. It also wasn’t innocent come to think of it!!!
Have you delt with any issues similar to this?! Playground drama sucks the life out of me!
