Rejection

It sucks! I don't think it will ever get easier for me to feel rejected and it kills me when my kids feel it.

Rowan has had a few issues with " friends" this year. I don't know how innocent he is in it all since I'm not there, but I do know that he gets his feelings hurt pretty bad. He has trouble accepting that not everyone is his friend and thinks if someone is nice one day ( even though they might usually be mean) they are his friends :(. It's hard to convince him otherwise. I try to remind him about all the kids that are always nice to him but he focuses on the others.
This weekend he started talking about a 1st grade girl on his bus who is one if his best friends. He wanted to make her a card!!



I thought that was so sweet! He put it in an envelope and put her name on it. When he got home he looked so sad. He said she didn't want it. What?!? I don't know if he didn't make it clear that he made her a card, I don't know if what she thought was in the envelope but my heart was breaking for him. He had tears in his eyes when he told us and I'm pretty sure I did too!

I want to say mean things about the kids that Hurt him but of course that would be wrong. I just don't get it. I'm sure he has or will at some point do something that'll hurt someone else but how can kids ( and adults!) be so hurtful?!

I'm so sorry this happened to Rowan. We have it a lot at our house, too. I loved the card! It was very sweet of him to make.
