Running and still falling
All of which to say that we're still working out the kinks. One of these days I'll get the chore chart together and mornings will actually get accomplished.
So even though I have no real point to this post I wanted to record a small conversation I had with Charlotte after school her first day.
Charlotte: I realized today that some people are just mean people.
Me: what happened?
Charlotte: there were just some kids that were mean.
Me: how do you know they were mean?
Charlotte: first of all, they were using mean words. Second of all, they were using mean voices.
Me: what did you do?
Charlotte: I just ignored them. Some people are just mean.
It seemed so grown up to me for her to realize that sometimes what other people do has less to do with her and more to do with them.
