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.
