Middle School

Wow....baby girl had a hard day today. She got off the bus and burst into tears as soon as she walked in the door. Being in a homeroom class without any of her old friends is hard. She has not made any new friends yet. She feels left out. I feel so badly for her, and part of me wants to storm the school and beg them to move her to another homeroom, but I just don't know if this is right. She was very upset, and cried for quite a while. She is sad that her old friends on the bus are talking all about their new friends. She feels left out. It was a bad day in 7th grade......

I am so sorry - it is a terrible feeling to be isolated and feel left out. I hope she makes new friends soon. I asked her on FB how was school and she said "It is great". I hope she gets to feeling better - tell her I love her. I don't know what is the best thing to do. Sorry :-(

AW crap crap crap.... I hate that for her. Being in a middle school and seeing the DRAMA between the girls for myself, I'd say ask to have her moved. Seriously. They've got toooooo much other stuff going on in their hormone packed lives to be worrying about being the odd man out. At Hubert, we've been moving kids in and out of homerooms since the first day, and I'll bet your school's the same way... if a parent requests it, they do it (at least at Hubert.) Good luck, let me know what ends up happening. ;)

UGh. Hate when you can't fix what hurts for your girl.
Ps. I'm finally here! took me long enough! I see I'm following you. But I don't think you are showing up in my followed blogs. Maybe now that I've signed into yours...

I hate this:(
It's always something to worry about!!This year smart butt kids are making fun of Cole's teeth and we are getting braces but I guess not fast enough for the cruel 5th graders:( Do what you think is right and you will feel better..Does she want you to ask for her to be moved?? If so I would give it a try:)HUgs to You and Rissa!
We could just go to the school and whip some butt..not..wait that might not be a good idea:)
