rough day for G. Made some poor choices at lunch with friends (she can have a temper which gets the best of her) Consequences at school were talking to the principal and writing a letter to the friend she hurt. Not quite enough - consequence at home is not going to a friends birthday party. She usually does not get that but she is in the other room crying - so while I hate to see her sad, I am glad that she "gets it" (The other girls was not really hurt but could have been. I chatted with the girl briefly and she seems okay but I know she was scared) praying G figures it out.
Pam, I know it's tough but you are doing the right thing. B has been on the receiving end a few times this year (she actually did nothing other than be in the wrong place when this other child got angry) and the other parent does not seem to care. The fact that you care, that you talked to the other child and that G "get's it" is amazing. You are a terrific parent and G is wonderful girl.

I cant wonder if some of this negative behavior is due to changing hormones - like maybe her period is getting ready to start - part of me hopes it is - cause then it explains it - but the other part of me says don't let it be that cause then I gotta deal with this behavior every 28 days.....I am just struggling on how to handle this
plans for the weekend - Georgie (and Zach) have regional tournaments tomorrow morning. Sunday - sunday school and church. Dave is going with a friend to see TopGun in 3D at the Imax...(I cant do 3D - my bet is he watched the movie either before or after on blueray at home. otherwise I hoope to get better organized on the yearbook - and to do a few art journal pages...
We are finally going out for my bday tonight - that's the plan at the moment. Other than that I think I'll do a small bit of work (should do more but just going to say no ) I think I'll also get my scrappy area and the rest of the basement in order too. Want to get some projects done (valentines and stuff for the Bears Bday) as well as back on my elliptical.
