To be annoyed? Or am I being pathetic??

DD6 went to a birthday party this weekend and when I was dropping her off the party mum asked her what she would like to eat out of 3 options and what she'd like to drink out of Coke, Diet Coke, Fanta and Sprite. I said she's not really allowed/into fizzy drinks, party mum said fine she can have something else. DH picked her up and she was very happy as she'd had coke, I feel quite pissed off as we've got this far without going down the coke route and typically she loved it, I guess I need a grip as she's not a baby but it aggravates me. At least it wasn't diet coke I suppose, hate that crap

She didn't decide, that was the drink she was given. I wouldn't be annoyed if they hadn't expressly asked me

Diana do you not think that by turning sweets etc into something so unobtainable that you're just making them more desirable? My 3 year old ds has tasted a lot of sweet things but doesn't crave them at all - he wil often turn down a biscuit/sweet in favour of fruit or bread. In fact we tried to motivate him for potty training using sweets and he's so blase about sweets it didn't work at all!

Helpful as ever Starball thanks

Party mum probably completely forgot what you said, in the clamour of hosting a kids party. Forget it!

dear lord! shock

I would say go for the sprite in future, it being the lesser of the evils.

I would not be happy at being lied to though, and that requires direct discussion!!

Where was the party?

YABU. She was bound to have it sooner or later. Time to let her make her own mind up a bit more often?

pictish Sun 01-Dec-13 21:44:51

Ok - next time you see her, march up to her and and snap "what did I tell you about NO FIZZY JUICE?" and then dunt her in the face with a head of broccoli.

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:44:52

Yes I think so Xmasbaby

Oh goodness me, I don't know why you've even given this a second thought OP.

It was a drink of coke at a party.

Anyone would think she'd sniffed a line

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:46:29

Er I don't think I mentioned anything about 'confronting' the mother? I seem to be typing things without realising it! Coke is not fizzy juice HTH

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:47:22

Why would anyone think she'd sniffed a line? Is my OP hysterical?

pictish Sun 01-Dec-13 21:47:38

Well what do you want us to say?
These things happen.

Does your dd know she isn't allowed fizzy drinks? One of my dd2's friends isn't allowed it either, but if offered always asks for water.

It could have been another person handing out drinks who didn't realise she wasn't to have fizzy stuff. Did you ask her why she drank it? At 6 she is old enough to know your rules.

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:51:37

Just a reasoned response to my comments thanks Pictish I'm more than willing to hear I'm BU, in fact I suspected it myself but its crap to say I won't be able to deal with the 'real dangers of the world' and I'm a competitive parent (if only you knew)

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:52:52

She drank it as according to her everyone else in the class drinks it, oh well

'Sniffing a line' was a joke...

But while you don't sound exactly 'hysterical' are being quite weird and OTT about one drink had on a special occasion.

everlong Sun 01-Dec-13 21:54:49

Wot worra said.

pictish Sun 01-Dec-13 21:55:33

I said unless you are a competitive parent in a ridiculous context so you would know I wasn't being serious....come are being very defensive...and you asked!

2Tiredtocare Sun 01-Dec-13 21:56:54

OTT grin maybe I should beat her to death with broccoli live up to my new rep

Are you 'fizzing' about this or just lightly 'bubbling' wink
