My good girl

I offered to max out the credit card and take the youngest on a vacation until this whole bullying mess is (somewhat) resolved. She thought about it for a minute and said, "No Mommy. It's OK. I'll go to school." Such a brave diligent little thing. If it had been me, I would have definitely made a break for it.

Well, we'll see what the week holds. Wish us luck.

I love that you did that for her. And I love that she responded like that. Thinking of you especially this week!!

The apple - tree analogy applies here. That is one special kid - and one special mom.

That bravery and wisdom of hers will help her all her life. And it helps her too to know she's got a loving parent willing to do what it takes...
