The other night after we got the kids to bed, my husband and I fell onto the couch out of pure exhaustion.
He was off the entire week which could have not come at a better time. In addition, to working a full-time job from home I’m also running the Philadelphia Community for Chevy. I know I’m a bit out of my mind, but I love what I do.
I spent most of my days sitting behind a computer trying to catch up on work.
He spent most of his days playing Mr. Mom by entertaining the kids, helping me make meals and handling school drop offs.
We both laid on the couch not saying a word, trying to catch our breath from the busy day we had.
After a few minutes, my husband started to tell me about a conversation he had with my older son earlier that day.
On their way home from school, my husband asked my son how his day was.
It was good.
Did you do anything fun?
Yes, we went outside today and played.
That’s cool – it’s a nice day out.
Yeah but Dad?
I don’t think F and R like me?
Why would you say that?
Because when I talk to them they ignore me and walk away from me. They do it all the time.
Well, you know bud your not going to be friends with everyone and that’s ok. You have friends, right?
Yeah S and B are my best friends at school. I like them!
It’s ok to not be friends with everyone as long as you are nice to people that’s all that matters.
After my husband finished the story, my heart felt like it was broken. My son is only in preschool and already he has to face kids not liking him and playing the mean game with one another.
I felt sad.
This was the first time I felt like I couldn’t protect my little guy. Once I drop him off, I don’t know what goes on behind the school doors.
I know he is going to face harder issues as he gets older, but I never thought he would go through this at such a young age.
Days later, this conversation still haunts me.
I still feel heartbroken for my son.
Have you ever gone through a similar situation?
