First Broken Heart



Soccer Girl and her boyfriend broke up yesterday. She was so sad. She had actually been unhappy for awhile now. He would unintentionally hurt her feelings. He was famous for making plans and breaking them. Ending their text conversations (yes, all the kids text now they don't talk how incredibly frustrating that would be for me) without a goodbye or a gotta run in "mid text". Going all week long without so much as a "Hi, how is it going". She would get her feelings hurt so often and be upset so much that I actually encouraged her on several occasions to move on. I just kept thinking like a "Mom". "What is wrong with him, doesn't he see that she is the most beautiful, sweet, and smart girl in the world" Ha Ha Now don't get me wrong, I think he is a great kid. He just didn't realize how much he hurt her and when she tried to explain it, bless his heart he was clueless. So now I must deal with my broken hearted girl. I want her to believe me when I say there will be lots of boyfriends. I want her to believe me when I say there will come a time when she will almost forget his name. "Mom, do remember what that boy's name was that I went to homecoming with sophomore year in highschool ?" I want her to know that every boy she dates is a learning experience to figure out what qualities she is looking for in that one great love. Most of all I want her to know that this is just a part of growing up. Of learning how to pick yourself up and rely on yourself for your happiness. So I will try to be there for her without sticking my nose in to much. (hard for me, very hard) and I will also take this as my learning experience because I have two more beautiful, sweet, and smart daughters coming up right behind her........
