misunderstood


I know 2 posts in one day! totally venting today, got a TON of stuff on my chest and this one just has got to get out. This is my little girl, she will be 9 in a few weeks. She is such a beauty, inside and out! I know I have talked about this a little bit before but it is not something that I think I can just talk about and be done with it. She is being tested for ADD, anxiety disorder and learning disabilities. I actually am way late in taking her back to the Dr......ahhhh another thing to do! man the list keeps growing, not that she is not important! She actually has been really behaving lately, she has been trying really hard. But that is not what this post is about this post is my venting my frustration on how others.....other mothers....judge my little girl. I know that people judging people has been going on since forever but oh man when it is your baby it is just so hard. 2 mothers at the school, who are friends, have both told their girls they are not allowed to play with Hailey, they said she is a bad influence and mean and there is no way they will allow their girls to come to our house or is she allowed to go to theirs.
I know my baby can come off as "misbehaved", the impulsive side to her that says , hey wouldn't it be a great idea if we climb on the roof of our house come with me and I will show you how, is just that....impulsive, not thought thru but did she say to the other kids, hey climb up on my roof or I will do really bad things to you? um hello mothers but your girls climbed up there of their own will, there was no gun to their head.
Her sense of well...her sense of herself, not even sure of how to describe it, can come off as cocky and arrogant, but really put her in front of the classroom or on a stage and she clams right up! she looks older than she is and she has a real maturity to her that belies her age. She is funny, sooooo funny this also gets misinterpreted.
I took a video on our road trip, I would post it here but I don't know how!!, and at the end of the video you can see Hailey looking at her baby sister and all of a sudden you see her face change, you can actually see the wheels turning and the thought process, and then bop she hits her sister in the face with her lollipop....it was actually funny and she didn't hurt her sister, but it was really interesting to actually see her impulsive thought patterns.
So is she perfect? no. Is she a handful? definitely. Is she a nice caring child? absolutely! and if she is your friend she will defend you to no end. She has such a huge heart and if people can get past the impulsive side of her they would see that. I hate that she is so misunderstood.
