Okay, babybugmama, load up my PM box!!! I need all of the thoughts I can get on this one! We dealt with some bullying with ds a few years ago, but the girl bullying scene is completely different.
I phoned the girl's mom last night and that went okay - she is coming over in a few minutes to talk. I really hope it goes okay. I saved the message in case she wants to hear it herself. This morning I phoned the school and spoke with the girls' teacher and that was frustrating. This teacher is young and a creative teacher but just does not seem to 'get' or respond to emotional and social issues. My other dd had her for two years and communicating with this woman always frustrates me. This morning I told her what had happened, I didn't say who the child was, just that I had spoken with her mother and that my dd had not heard the message, but that I thought she should know this was going on in her class. She responded with, "Oh, okay, glad your dd didn't hear it." I hope she uses the information to address the topic in the class somehow. I think I will follow up with her next week about it. Just because dd didn't hear the phone message doesn't mean that all of the playground and whispered classroom comments don't hurt, you know? My dd is an excellent student, usually a very happy, playful, creative kid and for the past month she has been crabby, angry, unhappy with her art work, hating school, not sleeping well, crying a lot - I really want more than a "whatever" response from her teacher, you know?
Ugh. I remember so well how challenging three year olds are. I hate to break it to those Dingos who have still-little-girls, but eight year old girls are enough to make you
because at this age all of their friend's 'stuff' comes home with them as well as their own
Tomorrow I see my surgeon and get a firm date for my surgery. Someone recommended that I bring in a bra in the size I want to be as well as one I am wearing now to show the doctor what I want. OMG - what a joke. I bought something on the bigger
end of what I want and it is completely dwarfed by my present bra
If she can make it happen for me, I may have to keep the woman supplied with chocolate for the rest of her life. It is recommended that I not run until well after I am completely healed, but I am already looking forward to running without all of this extra luggage on my chest every day.
