The Drama

Karaia has been kind of shy at school. Opposite of what she's been most of her life, but hey maybe she's decided she needs a new angle. Who am I to judge.

Anyway, she was coming home a bit sad because she couldn't "find" anyone to play with during recess. How that is possible since there are FIVE kids from our street, that she played with ALL summer, and THREE from her soccer team, in her class is confusing. But again, maybe she had some temporary blindness. I wasn't there. It's possible. Unlikely, but I suppose possible.

So we came up with a plan and even role played with it a few times. She chose a friend, beforehand, that she would ask before school started if they would like to play with her at recess. It worked like a charm resulting in her all but floating into the car for a week.

Yesterday, she informed me that the little friend she had chosen was playing with someone else when she got out to the playground. Dun Dun duuuuuuuun

The best solution to that, OBVIOUSLY, was to plop down on the grass and cry. Then, of course, the next logical step is to march right up to said friend and declare,

"Why would you want to do that to me?!"

Oh, the DRAMA! I hear it only gets worse the older they get. I wouldn't know because I'm pretty sure I was a drama free girl growing up........except for those few years between then and now.

I'm in trouble.

I am so scared for that part of raising girls, among other parts, and I remember it all to well and sorry to say it gets much worse...but you'll make it, I'm sure of it.

i don't believe it! karia....SHY! what? oh the changes that come with these little ones! and oh the drama!! you mean they don't out grow this anytime soon???

Wow! What a terrible recess life. I have noticed her becoming more and more shy also. Oh the drama of being a girl I don't think you ever grow out of it. Sometimes I get into shy phases and try to make friends and then when it goes different than planned, mentally act out the scene Karaia literally did. I think it's all just part of being a girl and being insecure in a new crowd.

Danica, I can just image you mentally plopping down on the grass and crying LOL!!!

Katie - I know! Who knew she could be shy. I'm hoping it's just a new school phase.

Brianna - I sure hope I survive. I guess I have the advantage over Kevin. At least I understand why she is thinking that way. You might as well be speaking jibberish trying to explain it to the boys.

Colle- Do you remember all the drama we would have in elementary school? Yeah. Good times!

Colle said...

Yes we had some serious drama. Good times. Hey I tagged you on my blog.

Danica said...

Oh - school stresses me out. I know we should spend time worrying about their academics, but I spend the majority of my time hoping that no one picks on my kids, that they are nice to others and that their friends are always good friends. It makes you crazy eh?
