And here is the other reason that i'm feeling a tad bit overwhelmed. Yesterday my son, 1st grade, was punched in the mouth by another 1st grader (the kid was Logan's bff and we just went to his bday party even) on the bus. His lip was slightly busted and his gum was bleeding. AFter he calmed down I checked him and he has a fat lip and his tooth is loose. It is his front tooth that he should be loosing soon anyways so I'm not too freaked about it. My son is what DH calls a "pansy" He isn't rough adn tumble and unless it is his siser he isn't likely to punch, shove, pinch, etc. (sibiling love?) He told me he was making monkey noises and may or may not have been asked to stop by his friend. When Logan didn't stop the boy punched him. The bus driver told me she would take care of it and they wouldn't be sitting together anymore for sure.
The boy lives close to us and because of housing positions I can actually see the kids house from our garage. I dont' know what to do. I think my son should have stopped, but I can't dismiss that the other boy reacted in a very aggressive way that I find unacceptable. I instinctly want to march over to the kids house and ask for his side of the story and say something along the lines of this is wrong and tell the day his son needs to appologize to my son. DH says he doens't really know what we should do other than wait and see what the bus driver did/does. I agree and I agree that to an extent if it is taken care of maybe we should just let it be, but it is my baby. I asked Logan what he wanted me to do and he asked waht I could do. I have no idea and I said that. He said he thinks I should do something otherwise the kid will just punch someone else. MIL asked me if I thought Logan was being bullied. I knwo that I had suspected that at one time, but the incidences we have had have all been random and by different kids that I truly think have just been accidental. The only time that I thought soemthing was up was earlier in the year when Logan was punched in the leg on the bus and since having his seat switched he hasn't had an issue.
I dont' know what I'm supposed to do or not be doing. I don't want to overreact and make things worse, but I don't want to underreact and him be hurt again either.
