Sticks & Stones
I hate the saying "sticks & stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me". I took the kids to one of our favorite parks this morning to meet up with some friends. While we were there a group of school girls started making fun of Waverly and made her cry. It was heartbreaking. I kindly (restraining my desire to break their bones) told them that Wavey couldn't hear. They didn't seem to care and went on playing. Girls are mean. It was the first time that I saw Waverly really get that they were not being nice to her. It made me incredibly sad and my desire to create a safe & loving environment for her was increased immensely.
