Jaree the terrible strikes again...

Sometimes when you pray for things, you need to be VERY SPECIFIC. When I begged the Lord the send me a daughter, that is all I asked for.....Was a healthy and beautiful little girl. So shall I ask, So shall I receive, right? I was blessed to have a healthy, BEAUTIFUL baby girl. However, I should had a side note, for her to be a GOOD litte girl! LOL

The problem is: Jaree is sooooooo much like me. I have to laugh sometimes. She is so fiesty! Well, today Ms. Jaree wakes up with a stomach ache. Which was funny, because if you are sick you don't guzzle down a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch! So, me being the mother of Jaree and knowing her well, knew there was something behind this sudden illness. Why doesn't she want to go to school? She went on and on about how she didn't feel good. I got my thermoter nothing. She wasn't acting like she was hurt! What did Jaree do or what is going on at school, that would make her come up with this tall tale of having a tummy ache?

So, I just came right out with it. I told her I knew she wasn't sick. I then asked her if there was anything at school that was going on that would make her fake sick. Jaree can't handle the pressure. She better not ever, ever commit a crime, because she would crack under the pressure within the first 10 seconds. LOL

Turns out some girls were picking on Jaree's best friend Litzy and Ms. Jaree, decides to take matters in her own hands. She ended up punching 2 of the girls and kicking the other girl. They all tried to gang up on her and she let all of them have it. She ended up getting lunch detention and that is why she doesn't want to go to school.

Does she not know that she is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh and I know everything she's going to do before she does it? We are tooooo much alike!!!!! She gets that fiestiness from me and she is a hothead like her father.....TERRIBLE MIXTURE. I am ashamed to say that when I was little I used to get into fights all the time....I would never allow anybody to step to me or get up in my face without opening up a can of good ole whoop ass! Jaree is the same way. She can't help herself! I do teach my children NOT TO BE BULLIES, BUT DON'T BE BULLIED EITHER! It may not be right, but it was the way I was raised and if you hit me I am knocking you OUT! lol

Needless to say, Ms. Shelly and I are close friends and she is the recess den mom and she told me that the little girls were asking for trouble and that they kept taunting Jaree and one of they all ran up in her face and Jaree just started swinging until nobody else was running. She said, I don't have to worry about Jaree, she handles herself well. She has been in training since birth with those two older brothers of hers......AND THEY DON'T CUT HER ANY SLACK!! She is a lady by all means, but don't turn her into an alley cat...

We had a long talk about telling the teacher what is going on and if you have to protect yourself, then atleast the teacher had a heads up. Now she's the one in trouble and she's not the TROUBLE MAKER...

She's really upset, because Jaree has never got a detention in her life! She tries so hard to be Good and thought I would be mad. I told her to always tell me the truth NO MATTER WHAT. Never be afraid to tell Mommy what's going on. I gave her a big hug and drove her to school....

That little girl of mine....
Whew...
What am I going to do?

Wow that's a hard situation...she got taught a lesson is consequences right there. She stuck up for herself but now has to pay the price. Thank god she's a tough little girl.

I liked the rule in my school where not matter whose fault it was you ALL got detention!!!

Oh my, bless her heart! I hate that she's having to go through with that! But she sounds like she's such a sweet little girl who was just sticking up for her friends. But, of course, you gotta face the music . ..
I think that's so funny about how she'd crack under the guilt and pressure in no time flat! My girls are like that too! They can't really get away with anything, because they feel so bad about it and have to confess!

That's tough. As a teacher...I think they'd probably all be in trouble in my book...but she obviously understands the consequenses...and that's good!!! :)
