Bullies....

Yesterday my hubby had the day off. He's been gone doing Air Force type things so a day off was just what the doctor ordered. We went out for breakfast....went to Lowe's....stopped by Avenue so I could drool over a coat I have my eye on.....walked around Sams Club so the Major could drool over a TV he has his eye on and we went back to the yucky meat store to get a whole chicken. My man wanted to cook Beer Butt chicken so Beer and Chicken were got. The only crazy thing that happened is when I was walking out of the store (he had gone to get the van) an older man burped right by my ear.
Why?
Why did he do that Int-nets?? And was it just as crazy for me to think "Hurray!! I'm so gonna blog about this!!" hahahahahaha

When we got home The Boo-Bear was walking from her bus. She looked at me and I thought "Uh-Oh. Somethings wrong." She said she had to talk to me and got a little teary. I grabbed tissue and we scooted for her room. Seems she was bullied. By a girl who's name I know well. Last year this same girl bullied The Boo-Bears friend mercilessly. For a year people. She confronted her outside of class...on the playground...in the hallway...at lunch. The Boo-Bear got into it with her a couple of times over it and her friends mom even came over to our house to see if her daughter had done anything to warrant the attacks. Ummm no. The mom was supposed to go to the school and have a conference with the principal over it but never did.
I guess yesterday she figured my daughter needed a little attention. She confronted her at her locker. Words were said and a threat made that she was going to get some people to jump her. My baby said she wasn't scared of her and for her to go away.....then our Boo-Bear said she flicked her fingers in the air so the hateful one would realize she meant it when she said to go away. Then? Then she cried while she looked at me. She said her fingers were shaking when she tried to open her locker. She said she didn't want to get into trouble at school. I was all WHA??? Why would you get into trouble? She is worried that the Principal will call them into her office to discuss what happened and that they will both get into trouble. Yeahno. The hubby is taking some time off this afternoon to make a visit to the school. He is going to talk to the principal about what happened. We went through this once when our son was younger. He had been bullied. We went through the proper channels...talked to the counselor.....got it documented....all the things you do. When the kid hit him for the first time my son hit back. They got hauled into the office and the principal called me to let me know they were both being suspended. She said she knew of the problem but with the whole no tolerance policy they were both out for three days. My son thought he'd get in trouble at home. Um no. We took the three day suspension and the bully never bothered him again.

So today will be a long day. My Boo-Bear had an upset stomach this morning but felt pretty good that her friends all called her last night to offer support, like only 7th grade girls can, and that her father is going to her school to see what's what. I'll sit here today and wait for her to come home.

sigh.

It's gonna be a looooooong wait til she gets home. 3 o'clock never seemed so far away.

Man- I hope the other girl figures out that being a bully is terrible. I hope her mom figures it out too!

Poor Boo-Bear....it makes the mama bear in you come out - didn't you want to just let that bully have it? I hate it when someone does something to hurt my baby's feelings. It's good that hubby is making a little visit this afternoon - that should straighten them out. The waiting is a killer....hope you take some stitches to make the time go by....sending you good thoughts....the Boo-Bear is lucky to have such wonderful parents. Piece....

KIDS! There has to be something missing at home. I don't understand the meanness for no reason. I know it will go great!

Nothing like sending in the heavy hitter...a Major! And nothing like Mom right there to hear it all and probably do a Starbucks run too! Hugs!

Update us please! I detest bullies and I detest that "zero tolerance" policy at schools. The administrators need to do their job and find out who's causing the problems, deal with them and leave the kids alone who are just defending themselves. It's ridiculous that kids can't stand up to a bully without getting in trouble.

We need more parents who will stand up and defend their kids. Thank you both for doing that.
