In the midst of paying bills a friend called. She had a few stores she wanted to visit and a couple of tag sales to see. Would I like to come along. Give me an hour and it's a deal. It was nice to get out with no kids and visit. While I was getting ready to leave youngest asked, "What are we doing today?" I'm going out with girlfriend. "What is her son doing?" He's hanging with his Dad. It is so frustrating that at 13 y/o my daughter has no social life and wants to be included in mine.
And I'm at a loss of how to help her make friends. I know her learning disabilities have hindered the process. And the older it gets the worse it gets. As youngsters kids could over look her social awkwardness but in middle school the gap has really increased. And youngest just disconnects and doesn't care. This is good in a way because it doesn't bother her to have no real friends but, I see the long term consequences.
My girlfriend and I had a great morning and stopped for lunch before coming home. I took son driving. He has a few more hours left to practice before getting his license. When we got home youngest was on the phone with bio. Wohoo! The woman remembered she has more kids. First call since August. She's supposedly sewing some clothes for youngest. Asking her about her sizes and color preferences. All I could her youngest saying is NO. NO dresses, No skirts, No pink, No peach, No light colors - What is that - NO, NO, NO. I like black and blue - dark colors. Ew NO!! Well, if she actually finishes the project and mails it I will be surprised. I'm sure she already bought the peach colored fabric. Maybe this can be her long awaited birthday present. It was only in April. And the worse part is oldest is living there and can't tell bio that her sister is NOT a girlie girl at all. Sad, she lived with her and never really saw her.
This morning I'm off to a breakfast date. My girlfriend is in town briefly. It's been since last winter when I saw her last. Yeah!!!!
