Our daughter loves coming home and telling us all about what happened in her school day, having not seen her all day we really don't mind listening to them either.

This week she came home with a story that had a lesson involved. It all started when K was in line for after-lunch recess, she had a confrontation with another girl and was kicked in the shin causing a scrape and needing a band-aid. K was not happy about this, this was not the first time this particular girl had bothered her. In fact most of the news K happens to come home with isn't very nice news about this particular girl, she seems to like to pick on K.

Later on during lunch recess it began to rain and then it began to pour. K was a smart-cookie and brought her blue umbrella to school with her this morning. She took it out and invited four other friends to join her and stay dry. The girl who hurt her wanted under the umbrella and K simply told her she was not impressed at being kicked by her so she could stay out in the rain.

I am proud of my daughter. She is a very loving child, she cares about others and only wants to be friends with everybody but when someone hurts her feelings or picks on her she takes it to heart and she remembers it. That's one thing about K, she's tough but she's also very sensitive

Yes, it was in a way cruel of her not to allow the other girl under her umbrella but enough is enough. Treat others how you would like to be treated because one day they might not be there for you when you really need them. This lesson was brought out in this situation where the little girl is constantly bothering K but when she needed K's help, she was not there for her.

There are only three days left of school, it's too bad there has to be some sort of problem right before they won't be seeing each other for an entire summer. Maybe this little girl learned a lesson, maybe not. Either way I know mine did, she was the one who brought up blogging about it :)

*This story was told to me by my 6 1/2 year old daughter, we got a note from school as proof that it did happen. It was not embellished or exaggerated in any way. All opinions are honest and those of A Motherhood Experience.*
