Third day in a row, I'm on a roll!
So my absolutely fabulous daughter Emilee? Remember her? She is the one who is so super smart and so super caring and yet she has never really had a great friend. It's sad. The one little girl she is always hanging out with is a brat who treats her poorly and recently I've made it pretty clear that I won't tolerate it any more. She has to surround herself in people who treat her well or not at all. I don't want her to get into the habit of thinking it's ok to be treated bad as long as there is someone there.
Anyway, she and this little boy named Shawn have become friends :) And they talk on the phone every day and email each other and have spent the last two weekends together (supervised - he is a boy after all). And last week, she came home and told me she had had an awesome day and when I asked why she explained that while her and Shawn were wonderful friends outside of school, they didn't really hang out in school.
Basically they way she explained it was that he didn't want everyone thinking that they were "boyfriend and girlfriend". Well Emilee told Shawn that either they were friends or they weren't and she wasn't about to be a "secret" friend. So he could hang out with her in school and out or not at all. And he said ok.
I can't tell you how happy it makes me to have her stand up for herself and know her own worth like that. It makes me very happy and puts a little check mark under my Mommy Column that says Did Something Right.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
