Hanging...

in there...
I went to the school yesterday and have spoken to the counsellor who was on to is straight away. I love their school counsellor she seriously is one groovy chick who just meshes with the kids in an incredible way.
She was so fab in chatting to me as well, she told me that this isn't uncommon for girls of 7-8 to go through this..She said a lot of the time it can be a control thing, in the fact that there is something else going on in her life that she feels completely out of control with.
We *think* that she could be being bullied again :( that in itself breaks my heart...yes she is a full on kid, yes she has a bit of an attitude but my god this kid has so much spunk, I honestly really do have trouble being and staying angry with her there is just something about her.
Why hasn't she mentioned the bullying you ask? well we were asking the same thing but her counsellor explained it to me yesterday, Diva has a strong sense of justice about her but also a strong sense of loyalty too..so whether your her friend or not she will be loyal and has trouble letting people know that particular people are bullying her because she knows they will get in trouble...insert example A...yesterday one of her *friends* was being particulary mean to her but in a behind the teachers sneaky kinda way, Diva wouldn't tell, didnt want to tell but the teacher caught this other kid and told her off...Diva was devastated at the thought she had got this kid in to trouble..
Yes that's my crazy confused kid for you...so that's obviously something else we need to work on.
Hunk and I just feel kinda lost...he came home for lunch yesterday so we could talk about it some more and kinda nut out a game plan so to speak...and I was telling him that my chest hurts, hurts in a way that its been pummelled by something hard...
It hurts...a lot...my baby girl is hurting and Im hurting..
I feel like I need to rethink the way we have parented her for the last 7 years, did we miss something, was there a sign that she tried to show us that she was either being bullied or a sign that something was happening to completely shatter her self confidence..I'm so freakin lost about this right now..
But I cannot and will not fall apart on her...so I'm researching, I'm talking and Im getting some information and Im gonna sort this fucking thing out... Hunk and I are strong together, we really do make a good team...and we can get through this...she will be fine..and if I find out it's because she is getting bullied...I'm going postal on somebodys ass...

On another note...yes life still does go on around me despite my world feeling like it's falling apart...
How freaking cool that Obama was elected as US president??? Wooooo Hooooo yes I was excited ok? lol
Dont get me started on the imminent execution of the Bali bombers...I have very very mixed thoughts on that...Im just not sure that there execution is the right way to go...

Not much scrapping been happening lately...a little bit but not a lot...have been busy getting things sorted for Wicked Princesses..the response to our site has been amazing...Thankyou to everyone that buys our kits...we really do love that you are all loving them sick!

My heart just sunk when I read this Tam - I am so sorry that she is feeling this way. I truly hope that she isn't being bullied and it is sad to think that kids these days are so conscious of themselves. I really hope that you are able to work through this and I can only imagine how helpless it feels to know that your daughter is troubled by something and not have the ability to change that for her in an instant. Hugs to you. xx

My heart goes out to you, Tam. I can't imagine what you are going through. I am sure that between you and your dh and the school counsellor that you will be able to get to the bottom of it and turn things around so that your dd becomes the happy little girl that you know and love.

My heart broke a little reading this - I hope you sort it all out Tam ... HUGS

Hmmm Tam...my heart is aching for you...I experienced the first of (many I am sure) of Ashton being bullied in a public park of allplaces by older kids and I was devestated that he had to experience that ...so I can only imagine what your DD is going through every day ... kids are sooo cruel...hoping you get through this soon ...and she is back on track (without knowing all the details) ...loving the layout btw
