This afternoon Squidge and I went to the park. She rode her bike and I trotted along beside her making sure she doesn’t fall down. She falls down even with her training wheels/stabilizers. We got to the park and to say she was happy well that would just be wrong she was EXCITED!!! She got to ride her bike AND she was at the park- WOOT!!!
Squidge is running around, playing on everything. She’s calling out to me and chatting away like she usually does. After a while she goes up to a girl and say’s HI! I’m Squidge and I’m a girl just like you. The girl just stares at her. SO she says it again and adds and I have long hair like you. we’re both girls. Again that stupid nasty piece of crap(SNPoC) just stares at my little girl. My three yr old who is just trying to be nice and make friends. Squidge repeats herself a few times and the girl never ever says anything. Finally I just called her over and we played something else. The entire time we were there this SNPoC just stood there staring at her whenever Squidge said anything to her. She had a friend w/ her who was going to play w/ Squidge but SNPoC kept calling her saying she had a secret. At one point Squidge wanted to play on the swings but SNPoC was on them so I told her she had to wait. Finally SNPoC got off the swings and when I was certain she wasn’t going back I told Squidge she could play on them. Just as I said that SNPoC’s head whipped toward me and then she ran to the swings. I wanted to slap that girl and take her to her mom. I was crushed. I KNOW girls are mean but this girl was only a couple of yrs older than Squidge. Please tell me they’re not SNPoC by 5 these days.
We ended up going home as I was miserable watching Squidge being treated badly by this kid. I know this is going to happen. It happens all the time. It was just tough to see. How would you have handled this?
