There is nothing better than your kids playing with their friends, it really gives a warm feeling in a mothers heart. I have noticed an annoying trend however. it seems to be the norm to send children to their friends house without feeding them. Usually kids come over around 1PM and stay until 5-530PM, and I don't mind giving a snack as a good hostess would, but I do have an issue with parents who don't feed their children and send them over hungry, resulting in them asking me to make them lunch. As mentioned, snacks are fine, but I don't think it is my responsibility to feed a meal to these children, I think parents are expecting too much and bad manners on the parents part.
