My son is on my ‘friend’s’ baseball team and he reported the son was mean to him last night. This little boy was being ‘rude’ to my son (his word for mean) and my little one told him he was going to tell his dad (the coach). The other little boy told my son to ‘shut his mouth.’ Now, I didn’t see or hear this part, but I did hear that other little boy say shut up later on and I couldn’t tell if was directed at his dad or another player, but dad had zero response/reaction.
DH has told our son ‘just stay away from him and if he gives you trouble at school, tell the teacher; if he gives you trouble at practice, tell mom or dad and we’ll talk to his dad.’ DH later reported to me that he saw this little boy shove my son away and then whisper to his little buddy, probably about our son.
Having a hard time dealing w/ this b/c I’ve kind of lost respect for my ‘friend’ and her DH over the last year, so her son’s behavior is just the cherry on the Sunday. If it weren’t for the fact that we used to be close, if this was just some other family that we didn’t know, it’d be easier to slough off. I told DH that it’s something we’re just going to have to get through.
The mean side of me is thinking ‘this little boy is getting ready to make his First Communion. Both he and his parents need the sacrament of Reconciliation!’
