So what do you think of this?
I am wondering if its just me or if this situation seems rather wierd. Ds just started a new preschool this week. We are new to the area, so I dont have any friends who live nearby etc. Yesterday when I was picking up ds, one of the moms approached me and said *Oh I think you live right by me!*. We talked for a minute and confirmed that we did indeed live near each other. Just as I was thinking how nice and neighborly it was of her to introduce herself, she says *Well I was hoping that maybe we could start carpooling*. I was a bit shocked-this woman does not KNOW me at ALL! I could drive like a maniac, have an unreliable car, be some kind of psycho for all she knows. Plus she has TWO children to my ONE-which means more work for me. And my ds is still in a booster seat-would I have to transfer it to her car on the days she drove?? What about her kids? I could just barely fit 3 in the backseat, but not with carseats-and we have a passenger airbag up front.
It probably will end up being totally moot anyway, ds would not go with someone he didnt know and I really dont need anyone picking him up. I thought I'd give her my number and tell her that if she gets in a bind, I'd happily help her out, but thats about as far as I think I would be willing to take it. Plus we only live about 10 minutes from the preschool-its not like we are having to drive across town or anything.
Am I paranoid? Overly cautious? WWYD?
