Tomorrow BuggaBoo is going to be babysat by a woman who has totally different discipline techniques than mine and isn't afraid to use them on other people's children.
Just for the record we don't physically discipline our children, reasons of which I'll go into on another post.
She offered to babysit and I felt I couldn't turn her down in fear of hurting her feelings. She would have asked why and blah blah blah. So because I didn't want to hurt an adult's feelings, which she should be fairly able to deal with it, I'm putting my son into a situation where he most certainly will have his emotions hurt.
Where did my spine go?!?
Update: I just called her with the very legitimate excuse that I needed to take BuggaBoo to Doozer's appointment because we suspect Doozer has thrush. Since I'm tandem nursing he'll need to be treated at the same time or else he'll just give it back to her.
I did call my mommy for advice, and I will be sitting down with my friend and explaining to her my unease about her watching my children. Ugh.
