Because sometimes, what you really need, is a BFF

So today after school

she was grumpy
really, really grumpy
Nothing I said was right and she was pretty much in a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad mood. (Yes - I took that from a children's book.)
She was ugly to me
ugly to her brother
ugly to her sister.
She was just grumpy and I couldn't fix it, I couldn't discipline it out, I couldn't sweet talk it out - she didn't need her Mom.


She needed her friend. Her very best friend from school called and her face lit up. I am SO glad that I let her talk because she went back to being my sweet ladybug after that call.
Sometimes - it takes a best friend forever to fix it.
I am so grateful for mine and I am so grateful that she is finding hers.

That is just too cute! You're right, everyone needs a bff and when your kids start with their own, it's so fun to watch :) I'm a new follower!

That's so sweet. I still get like that. Grumpy until I can talk to my best friend.
