Yes- she probably didn't want to miss out- she has never been to a party without gift bags at the end. I have talked to her and told her it is considered rude to ask for gifts although she asked very politely.
"I would have apologized to the other mother and told my daughter that it's rude to ask for presents, no matter how polite your tone of voice is."
"I would take her aside and explain that it's rude to ask people to give you things and ask her to apoligize to the host."
I appreciate your thoughts- I probably should have mouthed a "sorry" above dd's head. I wouldn't have felt right about apologizing out loud in front of dd or asking for an apology in the moment. Dd would not get the reason for her "sorry" in the moment and it would have made the moment more awkward. I usually try to be respectful to dd by not drawing attn to her mistakes in front of others. Thoughts?
The worst part was- the hostess was talking to her own dd as mine was saying "just a minute mom, I have to ask her something" Worse case scenario she thinks I initiated the question. Whatever- gotta let it go...
