My girl. My girl is beautiful and sensitive and dramatic. She is independent and sweet. Today she sobbed to me that "no one likes me." Whenever she is in trouble, she pulls out this phrase, because did I mention we're a bit dramatic? So at first, I just reassured her that we all like her. Then I realize that she was upset about friends at school. Her teacher had told me a few days ago that there was a bit of girl drama this week. Drama. In Kindergarten. Her teacher didn't fill me in on details, just that 4 girls were trying to play together and weren't meshing too well. I made sure that Ashlyn wasn't being mean, but now I'm thinking that Ashlyn is perhaps the one getting left out. Ack. These are such hard lessons. How to explain that not everybody will like her? How to explain that sometimes people are mean? How to put her in a bubble and protect her?
