- Wtf is the PIT anyway?!
Today at school the PIT’s class started working on their Father’s Day gifts.
(See why kids shouldn’t be in school past May 31st?!)
Father’s Day, as with anything involving the word “father” makes my stomach turn and is a touchy subject with the PIT
I braced myself for her tears as she brought up the subject…….
I braced myself for the questions I never want to answer, the talks I never want to have and of course…more tears…
Instead there were no tears, no questions, no drama at all…..
She told her teacher (and later, me) that she was making her Father’s Day gift for me and that when the teacher asked her if she had any males in her life who might “act” like a father,
she told the teacher “no, but I have an uncle in Wisconsin and a Hippie in Minnesota….but I also have an Auntie in MN and a Nana in South Dakota but my mom takes care of me the way a mom and dad would but all by herself so she deserves a Father’s Day gift and that’s why I’m making this one for her”
And I was suddenly so filled with love and so very proud of my girl for standing her ground and HOLDING it.
Also, the teacher & I have a meeting to discuss this “acting” like a father male influence crap. I will not have my daughter clinging on to the nearest male simply because she’s been influenced to think that she needs that. Although it’s a nice idea…the whole positive male influence…..but it’s not always the way it works.
