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.
