9 bottles of water

That is what the kids decided to open and pour out on our driveway today...all at the encouragement of our next door neighbor girl. She comes up with some hair-brained ideas and my kids lose all sorts of common sense and self-control and they do what she says! It's ridiculous! The other day when she was over, I was upstairs sewing my curtains and they were downstairs. I came down and they had play-doh all over the living room/dining room, after I told them not to. And they had also made a drink consisting of orange juice, Bon's dairy free milk, juice from a capri sun and who knows what else. Bon said I should've made them drink it all, but I didn't want to clean up any puke. But because they mixed up that drink, there was a sticky mess all over my dining table and chairs and the floor. I was so mad. I had to mop and wipe it all down. After she had gone home, I learned that she made them (and by "made them" I mean "told them") to eat some play doh. So they did! We've been trying to tell them that they do not need to listen to her and to use their common sense! She's only 7, so it's not like she has that much either, but c'mon! She's a really nice girl and her parents are great too. I guess I'll just have to hang around better/more when they play together. *sigh*

I say forget the kid! That is crazy. At 7 she should know better. If not, then she can go somewhere else.

I'm not going to say she sucks, that's kind of mean... she's just a kid. But I wouldn't let her come over anymore either because she is obviously trouble!

ROFL... annoying, but I will say that maybe you could make those litter box cakes I've seen floating around the internet... and offer her a piece. hehehe See if she'll eat what appears to be cat liter. LOL ;)

Hmm, maybe seven is too old to be playing with your kids. Or maybe it's just her. Either way, I'd seriously think twice before letting my kids play with her again!

That girl is old enough to know better. If you decide to have her over again, explain YOUR rules for YOUR house. If she can't follow those rules then she can't come over anymore. Owen had a similar experience with the kid next door. He doesn't play with him anymore. Which is fine by me!
