My little Princess turned 6 on June 11th. She went to school so pleased and happy and came home to be just as happy and pleased. I tried my best to make sure she had everything she wanted for her birthday. I did a really good job of accomplishing that. Though she didn’t go to school on the last day, we still had a pleasant day. Due to unforeseen circumstances Saturday didn’t go as planned for her party. We did get to spend time with one of me and Greg’s good friend and her adorable little boy. Though we had a great time decorating cupcakes and foam picture frames and door hangs. She ended up spending her evening crying on my chest until she went to sleep. The reason? None of her family she wanted to see came for her. Though I kind of expected that to happen and the boys have grown use to it. My precious princess holds a lot of faith in the people she loves and trusts. How could I break her heart and tell her the truth about people? The answer I couldn’t. I took the high road and told her, sometimes things come up in peoples lives and they probably got busy. However you know with our family we can always see them another time. The difference I noticed last night was my boys would normally hold their pain inside and just go to bed then wake up happy the next day. That wasn’t the case with my angel princess. Being a woman and growing up with broken hearts I know exactly how she felt. I just wrapped my eyes around her held her as tight as possible and gave her as many kisses as I possibly could.
My tip to parents who have to deal with this type of disappointment with their children girl or boy. Do your best to let them know how much you love them. If they have siblings let them know that as long as they have their parents and brothers or sisters they will always have a great time no matter what. As well never stop wrapping your arms around them in comfort. Kiss them as much as possible and do your best to preserve their innocence and their hearts. Be their protector when no one else will be. Tell them that sometimes what you do for other people they may not do the same for you. That doesn’t mean you have to love them any less, just tell them to never expect things from people that way they are never disappointed.
Unfortunately you may sometimes have to teach them these life lessons at a very early age. Just like I had to do with my precious little angel.
However, today she did wake up feeling much better playing and happy as always with her brothers, her dad and I. Her precious smile makes me want to keep her as precious as this for as long as I can.
