I wish that were true of adults as well.  Wouldn't it be nice if the most you ever had to argue about was legos and the true country of origin of lingonberry sauce?  :D

What sauce?
Tyttebærsyltetøy

Which, as we all know, came from the ancient forests of Sweden.  ;D

Just like Everest drinking water is from the ancient glaciers of Mt. Everest.

At least the jam is likely to be Swedish-made.

SWEDEN.  Ikea says so, and Ikea would never lie to me.

My car is from Wolfsburg. Does that mean cars originated there?

Don't be ridiculous.  Everyone knows that Sir Edward Car of Philadelphia invented cars in 1982.

The only thing I'm worried about is like, what if the mom starts gossiping about it to the other parents, and then they don't invite T to their kid's birthday parties and outings and play dates and won't let their kids come to T's.  That would seriously break my heart if T was getting blacklisted because they don't like me.  It's nothing to do with him, he's just a little kid.  Anyway, hopefully last night was the end of it. 
You live in a crazy country.

you sound like an awesome mom, Ali. Don't sweat it!
sorry you had to deal with that crap.  I feel very, very sorry for that girl (not even 5 yet...argh.. )

Ali, you are one cool customer.  Hopefully, nothing more will come of this situation, which you handled as well as anyone could.

Now I want Swedish meatballs and lingonberry jam, and I think the closest Ikea to me is 3 hours away, somewhere in Texas.   :'(

I think ou handled the situation very well, Ali. I know that if it had been me, after the other child's mother had said "I have NO IDEA why ANYONE would tell a small child there is no god.  But I would appreciate it if your son didn't go around saying things like that to my daughter." I don't think I would have been able to avoid blurting out something like "Why? Because you can't take it?"

Nah, just kidding. I would've actually said "You have no idea on anything much, do you? Clueless!"

But that's just me. ::)

Or maybe I would've said...oh, nevermind. ;D
