The other I am asking you.
First, the one that was asked of me...
"Momma? Do you think the cats were playing with my pumpkin? It's got hair in it."
Ummm...I doubt the cats were playing with the pumpkin. Instead, I believe that would be a sign that the pumpkin needs to be disposed of.
And now...Momma's not happy. Can you tell? (Oops...that's not my question for you!)
Some of you read about the bullying on the playground several weeks ago. In some ways, things have improved. But there are still some inappropriate words and actions going on and Gloria is very discouraged by all of it. I discussed it with her teacher at conference time last week. Thursday night, Gloria informed me that she had been talking with her teacher during recess and that she (the teacher) had helped her (Gloria) figure something out. Naturally I asked what that was.
Are you ready for this? Hold on to your socks, because I know I thought mine had been knocked off on Thursday night.
The other girls are bullying me because I'm too soft and I need to harden up.
I maintained my composure in front of my eight year old, but I really wanted to blow a gasket over this one. So my question to you is...how would you handle this? I'm so at a loss here.
