Update on Miss Lou. February 25, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Birthdays, Family, Kids, Miss Lou, Parenting.

Just wanted to give all my lovely internets a quick update on how Miss Lou is going.

 She likes her school. *phew*

She seems to have made a few friends.  *phew*

She had a falling out with one of those friends last week which resulted in her nearly getting hit over the head with a guitar *eeek!*

The falling out has been sorted out and now they are friends again (not sure if this is a good thing).

She emailed me around 20 times last week. In 4 days.

She has her new phone and is loving it. We bought it for her for her 14th birthday last week. She promptly started txting me at all hours of the night! *eeek again*

I shall have to explain that txts at 1 am are not a good idea unless she wants mum to die of a heart attack. 😉

She apparently had a few meltdowns during last week. She keeps verbalising that she’s missing me and that’s the reason for everything. I think it’s not so much that the missing us has become more acute, but rather that she’s allowed to say it, so she’s letting out 4 years worth of expressing how she feels.

Her aunt and uncle have been taking her out on Friday nights to see Shakespeare, and last Friday they all went to see Billy Elliot.

She still likes her counsellor and is currently working on controlling her emotions.

She is playing her keyboard again……… and making me listen to her play over the phone lol

So far so good.

Phew! Am so pleased for you both that things seem to be going well! The phone sounds a great hit!

Great news!

Good that she is able to get in touch with you anytime she wants – even if it is at 1am.

I’m so glad she’s doing so well, despite some hurdles. I’m sure she’ll continue to thrive.

YAY, it is always lovely to hear about Miss Lou now. She is going on the up and up !!!

Yeah, 4 years of suppression of emotion is coming out now.

Bitch fights between girls of that age can be hair tearing one minute and besties the next. Actually, it’s a good lesson for Lou in conflict resolution.

It’s great to read the updates on how she is going. 🙂

That’s great Bettina. 🙂

7. Jayne - February 26, 2008

That’s fantastic news ! You must be feeling like a huge weight is off your shoulders – she’s settling in, making friends, able to verbalise her emotions and enjoying herself 🙂

The 1am txt is more a test to see if there’s any limits her contacting you; she’s probably settling in happily knowing you’re on the end of a phone anytime she needs you 🙂

Oh babe. So wonderful. The news, not the texts, LOL, perhaps she needs a time frame? Between 8am and 8pm?

9. jeanie - February 26, 2008

That is wonderful news. I don’t know too much of the background story, but it sounds like she is settling and adjusting well. And yes, she has to learn to self-curfew the phone – at least to her mother!

Thanks for the update – I was wondering how she was going. It sounds like Miss Lou is doing really well. What more can you ask for………. Oh OK, no text messages at 1am.

Sorry – being new to your blog I had to blink a couple of times trying to work out who Miss Lous is / was…. but managed to engage a gear or two upstairs and discover that she isn’t a mysterious playmate from younger days 🙂

And upon learning who she is, I can drop my unsolicited 2 cents in and say how reassuring it must be that she can contact you *reletively* freely. Totally agree with the no 1am calls / texts…. at that time of morning, contact is definitely heart attack inducing! 😆
