Grr..that would be so annoying! I think I would just continue to say with a very firm voice (and a smile) "not today" and send her back home. She obviously has no concept of personal space, but that's no reason that you should have to put up with it. I wouldn't even let it bother me if she shows up in a swimsuit, just tell her it's family only swimming day, sorry.

You might need to lay down the law with her and tell her that she will not be allowed over unless she's invited first. Then maybe if she does get the hint and stays away for a few days, you can give her an invite?

Thanks so much for the reply, Melissa~she didn't call or come over the next day and today she called once, but I didn't pick up. I'm going to try the few days off bit. Hopefully she will take a hint. It is such a difficult situation, because I love kids, but I constantly feel tense around this one! LOL :)
