Reaching Beyond Myself
Friday, September 7, 2007
My daughter didn't want to go to school yesterday, AT ALL!!!!
She pulled the "I'm sick" card all the way down to, "mom I just don't want to go" OK, I'm thinking to myself, this is unlike my kiddo who is starting her second week of Kindergarten. She absolutely LOVED the first week, so what's up. Hubs and I have been talking to her about her day, friends etc......
So yesterday I tell her to go to class and I will stop by for her lunch hour and check on her. She agrees and our days start.
Around noon I head back over to her school to have lunch with her. She seems fine, acts fine, everthing is.....fine. In fact, she quickly asked me to "leave" as her friends were coming up to her table to have lunch with her. I'm thinking, oh good, she's recooped and she wants me to leave......ok
3:30pm she walks in the door to inform me that a little girl spit in her water after I left. Grrrrrrrrrr, my mommy roar was rearing up. I don't want my daughter to be bullied at school, especially since she's in public school now and we never intended for her to go there, rather private. My worst fear is being realized and I'm at my wits end. It's hard enough to release your child, whom you've been home with for 5 years, into the big world of school, but then to have them be picked on........UGH!!!!
So I don't know what to do. My flesh wants to teach my daughter to kick this little girl's butt, but I know that is not the right thing to do. I just want to protect her and she's out in the big world all alone from 9-3pm
any advice from other moms??
