First grade problems – This Owen kid

13 Sep 2017 by

Day 2

“So, how was your day, love?”

“Not so good…”

“Why, babe, what happened?”

“This Owen kid…”

“Who?”

“There is this kid on the bus, his name is Owen.” 

“And?”

“He asked me if I wanted to sit beside him on the bus all the time, and I said “Nnnnooot rrrrreaaaalllyyy” and he got sad, and now I am sad because he’s sad and it’s been a bad day. I broke his feelings. But I just don’t want to sit beside him. I want to sit with Maggie.”

Day 3

“How about today, love? Was today a good day?”

“No, mom, it wasn’t.”

“Why, darling, what happened this time?”

“This Owen kid, again.”  

“Again?”

“He keeps saying Lia, come sit here, come sit, come sit! And I don’t want to sit with him! I like Maggie. She reminds me of the other Maggie. She’s nice to me.” 

“But why don’t you want to sit with Owen, maybe just once”

“Mom! He’s a boy!” 

Lia, 6yo.
