Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
That was such a good thing you did for your daughter. I remember being that rejected kid one year in elementary, and it was terrible. Helping to create allies is fantastic.
It’s great you were able to help (love the art work as well)
you’re such a good mama.
That is a pretty awesome thing you did, Leslie.
Well done! Another great Mom to the rescue…...................
A mama that can’t type, apparently. LOL. LONELINESS. Wow.
But thanks, y’all. My mom did the same for me. Passing on the “friends are rad” gene.
What lovely insight to share! Thank you for sharing. Your daughter is strong and lucky to have you.
You are so right about needing a community. I’m in my late 30s and I’m still that girl no one wants to play with at recess. I freelance and I wish I had a village (or, heck, one person) to hang with. How great of you to do this for your daughter.
This is so familiar - my daughter is in 2nd grade and has had a couple of close friends decide that they don’t want to be her friend anymore… she cries before bed, doesn’t want to go to school, etc. She tells me she likes recess because she can play tag and “all she has to do is run away.” My heart busts into twelve pieces too. I’m not sure what to do. Maybe we should have a party - that sounds like such a great idea. xox
Gah, Lindsey. That nearly made *ME* cry. It’s hard to be a girl. :-(
If you do a party, let me know. I hope it goes well. (And I did see one of her friends from yesterday sit by her today on the bus.)
This is just wonderful to see that she had a good time and things did happen the next day for her, in a positive way.
That story broke my heart into 12 pieces too. Loved your tea party idea and loved the invitations your daughter made - especially since she drew a cat on them. : ) Resiliency….your daughter has it! A great mom…your daughter has that too!
You’re such a good mom, Flinger. I was that kid in school at one point. It is good of you to make sure she has a team.
Way to help your daughter out and reign in the overreaction that many of us would have had. You’re a great mama.
Oh crap. That story just about broke my heart. So glad you handled it as you did - filing this one away for future reference, hoping I won’t have to do it, but knowing I probably will (kids ARE mean!).
BAH! Girls and their clubs. Been through this with all 3 of my girls (my 9-year-old is going through something similar) and, well, let’s just say I’m NOT surprised you handled yourself way better than I would have (myself, not that you need to be handled, in that way, I mean) good on you, momma!!!
