So Meghan came home from school last week a little down. When I asked her what was wrong she said.
“Mommy the kids at school laughed at me” I tried my best not to react like a lioness standing over her cub.
“really honey? Were they joking with you or being mean”
“Being mean Mommy”
My heart sank, could kids really be cruel in Kindergarten? I wanted to just snatch her up and tell her I’d take care of any kid that dared laugh at her, but kept my cool and asked her…
“Well what were you doing?”
As Meghan began to tell the story I tried my best to keep a straight face.
“Mommy I was talking to you.”
“How were you talking to me Meggers?”
“On the phone”
“Which phone Meggers? I didn’t call you.”
“I know mommy, the cracker phone Mommy.”
Remember a while back I did the post on how Meggers pretended to talk on her James Bond, invisible, wrist phone? Well, now she’ll use anything and everything as a pretend phone. It just so happened that particular day she decided to talk to me on her cracker at lunch. Trying to think of the best possible way to let her know that a cracker phone might not be the best way to make friends at school I told her.
“Meghan, while that was an awesome use of your imagination, I think the those kinds of games should be kept at home and that way the kids wont laugh at you baby.”
Meggers with her usual smile and soft spirit said to me “Okay Mommy”.
She hasn’t had any other issues since then, as a matter of fact she’s made a new friend named Julian? Hmmmm who is this boy that she gushes over? I’m gonna have to keep a close eye on this one. ~Grin~
