Growing sounds like a wonderful, splendid thing. And it is.
But to grow big, grow up, grow wise, there always exists growing PAINS.
I am experiencing this now through my daughter. Being always educated at home this is her first year in a school setting. I thought that the Montessori approach would be a smooth transition for her. It should be.
But overshadowing her education experience has been her new experience with MEAN girls. I should have known; known that THEY are everywhere. But it as been since I was in school that I have seen them around affecting me personally.
My daughter is going through a life growing experience learning how to handle unpleasant situations and people. She cries. Her belly aches. I do the same FOR her. These growing pains are not pleasant and as with any pain I want it to be relieved.
The saving grace is that she is growing and I am too.
