I am sure she will thoroughly enjoy the party especially since the whole class knew she was the one who made the pinata and then they saw how it was destroyed and were disappointed and now that DD has repaired it, plus those yummy cookies that she is bringing, I reckon she will be getting quite a fair bit of attention today. :wink:

You CLEVER Mommy! There is a lot of gentle determination in what you're doing. Kekekekekeke! Like I said, I wouldn't wanna stand in your way, Mama Bear.

I think I understand your feeling. If it were my ds, I will be upset too. As parents, we all want to protect our children and don't like it if we think they're being taken advantage of.

I recently went for a self-improvement course that taught me that when we get angry or stress, our body will generate chemicals which are toxic to our body. That's why stressed people fall sick easily. In the long run, these toxics will cause our body to fall sick and maybe even suffer from serious illnesses. In the meantime, the 'perpetrators' of our misery don't even know the irritation they caused us. So unfair right?

Your dd is so sweet and forgiving. I mean if she gets vindictive and starts cursing L, I think you'll be more worried. :sweat: Just take it that L is an inconsiderate person who's (fortunately) not going to be your dd's classmate anymore :rahrah: and stop ruminating about it.

At least we can rant our problems here and it has proven to be quite therapeutic for me. :smile:

Heard of this?
