~i don't cause drama nor do I encourage it to come near. I prefer to steer clear.
~then I got married & had a baby...and the drama found me.
~plenty of drama in O's family, of which I won't go into....instead let me share with you the drama that has evolved in the very, very, very important PLAY GROUP! (sarcasm!)
~yep, that's right folks. Play Group has become full of drama & is on the verge of falling apart. crazy, i know!
~E and I missed quite a few over the Summer since I had class on Thursday mornings, but now that the group has been changed to Fridays we can participate again...that is if it doesn't all fall apart.
~I don't know how/why it started & I am not involved (thank goodness). Well, my involvement is actually just being updated on it all from my play group friend (the one who keeps me on the phone F-O-R-E-V-E-R). She is the "founder" & "organizer" of the group.
~It seems that one of the newer gals that joined earlier this year was trying to "take the reigns" from my friend and wanted to lead the group....I dunno much more than that, but that seems to be the situation.
~Then a clique formed with the "take the reigns" girl & all kinds of other high-school-ish behavior ensued. At this point, I'm glad I missed all those summer play sessions...apparently that is when all of this went down.
~So now "take the reigns" newer gal has dropped out. Apparently she got upset when she called to ask if she & her daughter could still come to our last playgroup even though her daughter had a fever the day before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Um, really? Are you kidding? It had not been 24hrs since she was fever free & typically that is the "rule" to avoid exposing others.
~Just the fact that she asked annoys the piss outta me...because you see...on NUMEROUS occasions her daughter had the world's nastiest runny nose while at many of our play groups. Before I knew better, I chalked it up to the whole teething process...but now I'm not so sure.
~So all that to say...i cannot understand how grown women have the time & energy for all this drama & to be so unbelievably ridiculous. And even while my friend (founder) says she's "sick of it" etc.....I think she plays a pivotal role in all of it as well.
~So now it is likely the group will (sort of) end and then a "new" group will be started, which will include only the non-cliquish people. Let's hope the new group stays drama-free...
