Riley has a little friend that constantly invites herself over. In fact, she begs to come to our house. Every day. She does not get to come over every time, but not a day goes by that she doesn't ask.
Can I come over today?
On the weekend?
Then what about next weekend?
When she is at our house, she wants to eat.
Can I have a breakfast bar?
Some string cheese?
Bread and butter?
Another breakfast bar?
Can I have another?
Part of me wants to feed the child. Anything she wants. She's hungry. For something.
But part of me feels I am not serving her if I don't teach her it is impolite to invite herself over all the time and to eat your host out of house and home.
Part of me is just so damn glad someone wants to play with Riley. But I'm not so sure Riley's the draw, and that makes me just a little queasy.
She's a sweet girl.
I don't know the answer.
