You may also recall my love for Salt N’ Pepa.
So naturally, Gabe’s Baby Song is to
one of SNP’s greatest hits,
“Oh, Baby Gabe-y, B-Baby Gabe-y-
Ohh, Baby Gabe-y, B-Baby Gabe-y!”
That’s all I got so far.
It may not seem like much to you reading it,
but that’s because you’re not seeing my
hips gyrating and arms waving.
And since that will NEVER be available to see on the Internet,
I guess you’re just going to have to take my word for it-
(No, she has not seen that movie.)
This picture was taken when she was two,
but she still makes this face when she’s upset.
I just registered her for Kindergarten,
… like she OWNED it.
At first I just thought she was being a good listener in school.
lately, she’s made fleeting comments that certain girls in class don’t like her.
All of the friends that she plays with are boys.
(Which I noticed at the b-day party that she seemed the most comfortable with the boys in her class).
When those boys aren’t in school for some reason,
she says she has no one to play with.
It kills me.
I want her to be her crazy, silly self.
I want her to feel comfortable going up to the other kids in class,
and showing her true colors.
Why in the world should she hold back as a four-year old?
Why in the world would the other four-year old girls
already start creating cliques?
Isn’t that a little YOUNG to be starting that?!
Why in the world did the girls in her class decide they weren’t going to like her.
Is it superficial- her clothes? Her hair?
Is it because she gets attention from the boys in class?
Surely, the other girls can’t be feeling jealousy about that at this age- can they?
Or is it just because Kaia is shy and doesn’t go out of her way to play with those girls?
I feel helpless.
I just want to take care of my little blond-haired babydoll.
to be confident…
to have friends…
and to realize how special she is.
Thanks for staying with me, folks-
