It is hard to be the mom. Sometimes. Like today.
All four kids had tough days at their new schools. They made it through, but I about died when I got a text from Kate in the middle of the day that said, “Pick me up now. I hate it here. No one likes me. I want to go home to Virginia.”
And when I picked Jonathan up and asked how his day was he said, “It was okay, but I had a hard time at recess. I didn’t know what game to play, and I felt like crying, so I went to the Library and talked to the Librarian.”
Or how about this one, Ellie told me that at recess she was trying to find someone to play with, and a girl said she would play with her and said to wait right here for me. So Ellie waited. But the girl never came back.
And my stoic Maddie, who said the day was okay, but lunch was so awful she went to the career center and looked at jobs.
Please tell me we will get through this. My heart is breaking.
