My Abigail is 12.
And she is loving it.
I never want her to be a mean girl.
I hope she will be friends with everyone.
I think I was guilty of being a mean girl
as a teenager,
and it's one of my few life regrets.
I wish I would have not worried about my popularity status
but just loved everyone.
Go here for a good article about bullying.
I am gonna make Abigail read it.
Just in case she could use some help.
With being bullied.
"Being nice" talks are very important
when a girl has three little sisters
who watch her every move.
Now on to other things I say to Abigail too often.
Did you finish your homework?
Go to your room.
No dating until you are 16.
If you don't have anything nice to say,
don't say anything at all.
Wash your face.
You're so sexy.
Look me in the eye.
Quit primping already, it's time to go.
You are so beautiful.
You don't need make-up.
I love you and I'm proud of you.
C'mon, give me a hug. PLEASE!
How was your day?
You are so cool.
