Obviously I was beginning to understand that occasionally, within the safe confine's of our home, there would be some disharmony between our children. This basically holds true in all families. Sharing a living space with people who have different personality traits, can be challenging, to say the least.
But outside of our house, it was my expectation that we were, DUN DUN DUUUN... Team Beck.
That was until I began noticing Kayla sitting by herself on the school bus. She was in first grade and Jordan was in second. I asked Kayla what was going on. (I know, shocking, right?) She told me that her best friend would sit with Jordan and then quickly ask her older sister (Jordan's best friend) to sit with them. Jordan then proceeded to tell me that the older sister erased Kayla's name out of her Friend Book. I thought to myself: I don't like this, but it's okay. Kids can be mean, and I can use this as a life lesson on how to handle bullies. But then Kayla informed me that Jordan told her friend to erase Kayla's name.
Honestly, at this moment I had no idea what to do. I thought I might lose my sh*t, so I got in the shower, and proceeded to cry like an angry baby.
How's that for dealing?
