Em "knows" fashion
After it was over, I came home with Abs while Gunner and the other two kiddos went to get dinner. Abs proceeded to tell me that the way she was dressed made her move from the "outer circle" of Jordie's friends, to the "inner circle of the outer circle" of friends.
I had to take a deep breath. We had a long conversation about how people should like you for what is inside of you, and not what you wear or anything else. Where did I go wrong?
Abs has a really hard time making friends, because they don't exactly think like she does, so she really wanted the other kids to like her. But just the thought of inner circles of outer circles, makes my skin crawl.
My grubby son, who was a Soldier that night. He got kicked out of the Y daycare for stomping on other children's feet because they "won't be my bestest friend". Apparently my children need a lesson in friendship.
