Yesterday was a rough day. My youngest daughter was playing with the neighbor's girls, one a year older than her, the other a year younger, both bigger than her by a fair amount. They basically double teamed her and body slammed her into a trampoline. Thank God she wasn't hurt. Just a couple of bruises and scared. But not hurt. That created a heated argument with their mother who never seems to believe that her little darlings do anything wrong (and she doesn't watch them so they get away with murder) even though I wasn't the only person who saw it. Those girls are MEAN! I'm scared to death what's going to happen as these girls get older and can drive and such. My daughter is only 8 so it's going to be a long hard road with these kids. One or both of them will always be in her school. Always be at her bus stop. In her dance classes. And in her other various school activites. It could get really ugly.
Anyway, I didn't handle it well and binged. Today, I'm just physically and emotionally drained but not kicking myself. Just trying to pick myself up and keep going. I do have a good friend who's daughter is a very good friend of my daughter's and they are taking her out for the day so she can get out of the neighborhood. After the blowup yesterday, these little brats were riding their bikes up and down in front of our house making faces and calling names. Just basically harrassing my daughter and the mother didn't do anything about it. Yes, it will be a long, hard road.
