Bitches Are Bitches


My daughter is a bitch, and I don't know what to do about it. She and the girl across the street have been best friends since they were itty bitty. They are like sisters. They play together every day after school. They're inseparable.
  
A few months ago, a new girl moved in down the street. She's a nice girl. Plays well. Uses her manners. Pretty, wavy hair. It wasn't long before she became one of the pack.

This morning, my DD's best friend came over to see if she could play. My DD was totally excited to see her, but when she stepped onto the porch, the new girl showed up at the end of our driveway. The three girls all stood there staring at each other. Nobody said a word. You could have cut the tension with a knife.

The staring contest lasted about a minute. Finally, my daughter walked past her best friend and took off down the street with the new girl. Her best friend, odd man out, slowly walked back home.

It was painful to watch. Why are girls like this? The boys don't have these problems. They play ball and wrestle with whoever shows up in the street. They don't have to play with only one friend. Everyone is welcome. Why can't the girls figure this out?



Yes, my daughter is a bitch....in every sense of the word.

Oh, ha ha! I have a five year "human" daughter (as you know) so I was hanging on every word till I got to the pic! You're so funny!

I was thinking hard of the right words of wisdom to give to you. I scrolled further down your lbog (my first time here) to see if you had been haing any other problems with your "daughter." As I scrolled up, I glanced at your piture. LOL...I guess the talk I was going to recommend would not be approriate. Cute post. :)

Sharon - We are dealing with this issue in the "human" world also. I'm not sure who's learning the behavior from whom. Luckily, my "human daughter" and her friends are just hyper sensitive in threesomes rather than maliciously excluding each other. SO...if you have any words of wisdom on the subject. PLEASE do share!

Glad you stopped by. Come back often. :)

Kim,
Just remind your daughter that she only wants to speak and treat her friends the way she wants to be spoken to and treated. It's something I had to remind my fourth grade students repeatedly. But each time I reminded them, they listened. It's something we all have to learn to do, and it's okay being reminded, because we all want to be liked.

Ha. That is a tricky bitch post! So fun, and funny! Plus, you get to cuss on your blog without really cussing!

HILARIOUS!! I guess my daughter is a bitch too. A bitch that eats poo. You can't really get any worse than that, can you??
