Valentines and Mean Girls

This morning Jenny and I were preparing her valentines to take to school today. Jenny wrote her name on each one in the "from" space. Then I inserted the temporary tattoo that came with each one and folded it. Next Jenny removed a heart sticker from the sticker sheet and taped each valentine shut.

During this process Jenny said "And maybe when Vera gets a tattoo she will like it and then she will be nice to me."

I started crying.

It makes me so sad when I learn of my beautiful nieces and nephews going through the hard parts of childhood. Girls can be so mean. I remember asking Mom if I could stay home from school one day because my best friend was out of town and I was afraid of what my bully might do to me in my solitary state.
It just makes the home and family relations that much more important. Having a safe haven to return to makes public school endurable.

That is the saddest thing I have ever heard!
