I just did something stupid and feel like a total craphead.
One of the little guys from school was running home and went by me screeching at the top of his lungs. My 5 yr old said "________ screamed like a girl." Of course I agreed with her but stupidly for me he was still in earshot and I think it hurt his feelings.
Not only that but his big sister was there and when I would have apologized she took his hand and took off.
I may have an overactive guilt complex, but I feel horrible. I wish, when I'd asked, they had stopped so I could have told him I was sorry. I will see him tomorrow at school but have horrific thoughts of his big sister going home and telling their mother about the awful lady at the playground.
Dumb, dumb dumb me and my big mouth. I hate it when I do something thoughtless like speaking without thinking. And I don't like knowing I've been responsible for hurting someone's feelings since 99.9% of the time I try to be a compassionate person.
And for a confession, I really don't feel any better.
