Do you hang out with people you dont "love" because your kids like their kids?

There is a lady who always invites me to hang out, and while I really don't like her, her kids are well enough behaved and my son loves them, so I end up accepting. Is this weird? Is it "two faced"? Is it normal??

I have. Never again. I have enough people who I like the moms and the kids not to worry about it.

I have, I will not put myself through that any more. It makes me dread them making friends and I do not want to feel that way.

Yes, but its not a regular thing and I don't want my kids to miss out on a good friendship just because I don't like the mom

Ugh there's this one british chick who is so laaaame!



Seriously though, yeah, I could see that happening. I make an effort to meet other moms and befriend them, but there are some times that we are obviously not hitting it off but we suffer through because the littles seem to be interacting well.

Yeah, I wouldn't if I really hated the parents, but just not my fav people, sure. I'm naturally pretty introverted and I'd usually prefer to just hang out at home, but my dd loves people, so I have to get out there for her. At the park or whatever, I just bring a book and chill, though, I don't go out of my way to chat with the other moms.

No.

Now when my daughter and son are much older and of they have really huge friend preferences, then maybe.

But now, just playing nicely isn't enough.

I could hang out with someone I didn't totally click with if our kids got along well, but not someone I actively disliked or disrespected.
