It has been an interesting week with Addie. I will share a couple of the stories.
The first situation is I started receiving Congratulation emails from mother helpers in Addie's class. Apparently she told them I was pregnant. I immediately responded back with thanks but Oh my Gosh I am not pregnant. I am wondering how many other people out there she has told. She didn't deny the fact that she had been telling people. She simply just said that I look pregnant. (Thanks Addie I really appreciate that)
Situation #2 Addie made a little girl in her class cry by telling her she was allergic to her. A woman in my ward told me about it and that she talked to Addie about how that hurt her feelings so Addie apologized and they were friends again. At home I asked Addie why she said that. Her response was " Mom, I think I am allergic to her. So I asked why and she said "because every time I am around her I start itching." So I explained to her that even if she thinks it is true she shouldn't say things like that. She replied, " I know mom that is why I wrote her a note saying sorry that you make me itch." Addie performed at the Covey Center yesterday. She did a beautiful job. She has great stage presence and can really point her toes. Watching her dance her heart out made me feel less irritated with her.
