This has been such a bad week for my 11 year old, Paige. Started out Saturday evening she got sick with fever & feeling exhausted. This went on & she had to miss school Monday & Tuesday which because she missed her orchestra class she now can't be in the halloween performance. She went back to school on Wed. but came home feeling bad & later that evening she let me know she started her period. UGH! She's only 11!!!! And I don't think she's mature enough to deal with it, heck, I can't get her to brush her hair yet. So I had to send her off to school today with little experience on how to deal with her period & all the trappings but she seemed to be ok when I picked her up. Then tonight, before she goes to bed, she finds her pet lizard that she's had for two years dead in his tank. She just bawled. Poor kid, I wish there was something I could do to make her feel better but all I could do was hold her while she cried
