So, after the last day, I call his teacher. My man loves his teacher, he wears deoderant (Axe) and wants to impress her, both by actions (classwork) and looking good. They have a special relationship which is wonderful. Since it was difficult to get the entire story, I wanted to chat with her- get another perspective (I have never wanted to track down 8 year olds and beat them up). We chatted, she handled this situation well I think. Ms C gave him choices, how would he want to handle this- did he want to tell his friends what the pin was for and share what is happening with his mom? Did he want to not talk about it any more? What did he want to do? He chose to share, him and one of the other boys talked, and the boy apologized and they both shook hands. What a guy- I am so proud. There are things I am still struggling with- why didnt she call me, my son never sobs and cries? It is never ok for another person to put there hands on another- grab a pin on his body. Is this bullying, or just young boy behavior.
What I do know is that this incidence has changed him. Today he is possibly embarassed by me, my baldness, my being different and this oozing onto him and his life. He could be protective, but either way, he and I are changed by a thoughtless act by a child. It makes me so sad. He doesnt want me to go to his Halloween party, he doesnt want bald, sick, cancer me- it hurts.
