So sunday was my sweet baby girls birthday, she turned 9 years old! We celebrated Saturday with a HUGE family (hubby is 1 of 12) backyard cookout, her idea, she loves her family.. We had a great day, which started off with her soccer teams FIRST ever win and ended with baby girl being showered with love and money for her "NEW" savings account.
Ok, so Sunday, she saved 2 of her cupcakes for the neighbor kids, you know the ones I talked about in a prior post who, at times are so mean to her.. So she was eating dinner and I said "did they like their cupcakes?" she said."yes, until Mr. "JERK" yelled at me!" HUH? she said, Well, he was in his car and I was going to shut his door for him and he said..are you ready..Drumroll please.."get your hands off my car and don't touch it again, I don't care if you are 9!!!" and ladies and gentleman, THIS IS WHAT ticks me off..who talks to a child like that..and the saddest part..she was beginning to accept this abuse and think it IS HER FAULT like abuse victims do..she said "maybe he thought I was going to slam his door..and I said NO, HE just doesn't have any manners..I am sorry, I couldn't hold it in..it is hard to seperate them, but my daughter shouldn't be privy to ABUSE because they are.. so anonymous, I am NOT STOOPING to their level..we tried being nice by saving the cupcakes for them and bam..beat my child down..not again!! BTW, I changed my comments, NO ANONYMOUS comments, if you have something to say own it and post your name..sheesh, I am old enough to accept constructive criticism. Am I being too sensitive? it made me so sad to see her justifying his redneck, hateful attitude!!
