I called and RSVPd saying that DD would attend and the mother informed me that she was going to be picking up the girls from school because another mom was also going to help pick up kids (whereas before she didn't have room in her van for all the girls). Then she said she would take DD to preschool as she was also taking another girl to the same preschool. I told her OK.
Well, now I'm really having second thoughts. Like I said, I don't know the mom. And besides DH/me and the preschool/field trip bus/van, DD has only ridden with my mom/step dad and brother (and that was only 1x with my bro) and a good friend's mom (2x).
Am I being funny about this? I know I should go with what I feel is best. But I'm curious what you would do in my shoes - if it was your child and you had to work. Do you think the timing of the party is kind of "different" too? I guess being that I work, I would only schedule a weekend or evening party. Like I have said the mother is very willing to drive DD, but I would NEVER offer to drive another child somewhere if I didn't know them. Would you??!!

BTW, I told DD last night that I didn't know this mom and didn't feel comfortable with her riding in the car with her. I asked her if she would be OK just taking the present to her friend at school and not going to the party. Surprisingly, she said it would be OK. I feel terribly though and just left a message for my mom to see if she could take her and pick her up. If she can't, what kind of "excuse" should I give the mom?
