Advice needed ;)
We live in a townhome, and have enjoyed living next to a vacant home adjacent to us for the last 6 months (my favorite kind of neighbor! ha!). But now we have new neighbors that have moved in. And guess what? they are smokers. Now, no offense to any of you mamas that smokes, but I happen to be repulsed by the scent of cigarette smoke, and don't want my kids anywhere near it either.
Since we have had such unseasonably beautiful weather here lately, I was enjoying a little outdoor fun with my 4 year old DS and Millie (now 5 mos like the rest of your babes). Well, what came wafting over but nasty cigarette smoke from the neighbor.
Is it prudent for me to ask him to not smoke while we are outside? He's in his own yard, his own space... DH thinks I should just go around to the side of the house where we can't smell it, or go out front. But my feeling is that we paid big money for this house, and I should be able to enjoy it wherever and whenever I like.
What would you do? And if you did ask him to stop smoking, how might you go about it so as not to make enemies of the new neighbors?
