This was supposed to be BM's weekend. BM text DH and cancelled 6 minutes before she was supposed to pick up SD. SD was a bit upset, but really didn't say much. We had DH's company picnic Saturday. SD had a great time and everyone got cool prizes. Friday evening, all day Saturday (except for when we were at DH's picnic) and all day today SD got to hang out with this boy she has a crush on. He visits his dad EOWE.
Anyways, tonight SD got into a CRANKY mood and was being snotty to everyone. She said no one cared about her and she felt like crap, and burst into tears :( poor thing. I asked her what made her feel like no one cared, and she said she was mad that her mom didn't want to take her this weekend, and that her mom didn't even text her until today about being sick, and she knows her mom COULD have hung out with her, because she had medicine for more than 24 hours.
I went over some things her counselor has taught her about how to deal with this kind of stuff and she finally calmed down and was doing OK. I reminded her she wouldn't have been able to hang out with her friend if she had gone with BM, so maybe hanging out with him could be her back up plan on the weekends that BM has to cancel. She liked that idea :)
Once she was finally calmed down and back to normal, I reminded her that it's not acceptable to be mean to others because she's mad at someone else. I made sure she remembered her coping techniques that her counselor has taught her.
I really hope BM doesn't cancel her next visit.
