There's a chilliness to the air around my home today, even though the warm breezes follow me as I walk my yard. My block politics are worsening now that those trouble hungry boys like to spread lies about my son. In order to protect themselves from any culpability as the true bullies on the block, they are telling their parents that my son is physically threatening them. I wonder if I made this situation worse when I delayed getting the other parents involved initially. I was trying to honor my son's wishes because he didn't want to be labeled a "mama's boy". Now these clueless parents want or maybe need to believe that my son is the source of all the trouble. I can't believe that we are in this situation. It's so tense when I run into these moms at the bus stop. I tend to get along with everyone so I'm very uncomfortable being around them.
We have such a lovely house, but I wish we could easily move to a nicer block. I pray that things get better during the summer break.
Hope you guys don't mind hearing me go on and on about this. When I'm alone here on the laptop, all this frustration and emotion hits me hard, and I feel a strong need to talk. Thanks.
