Mama Bear Strikes Again ..... And Takes Out Innocent Bystanders Along The Way

That is what I told Leon last night, feeling as crappy as I did about certain parts of the email I sent to Cassie's coach. I do not regret it all, but some parts I absolutely would take back if I could.

I would take back my opinion that I gave in anger when I was told Cassie was benched for playing lousy. It was petty and childish and I hope those who visited Monday's post will venture back today. I let the issues with school meld with the soccer team issues and ranted and raved to avenge my own daughter's "lousy" game.

I am truly, truly sorry.

I hope that the person who is talking about sending the email copy out to others just to be vengeful realizes that it is only the kids that will get hurt and takes the high road.

I am sorry that I posted it on my blog, even though it IS my blog and I am free to say what I choose on here. In my defense, I had no idea that anyone from soccer even knew that I blogged, let alone took the time to come and read it. My blog is automatically linked to my facebook, which has all the highest security settings on it, so again, I felt it was a safe place to vent, since I am not "facebook friends" with anyone related to the team.

Is NO blog sacred anymore? Sigh....

I regret that my actions may make things harder on Cassie at school. I have instructed her to let the kids know, if they try to beat the hell out of her, that her mother spoke in anger and is very sorry.

I have expressed my regret at my line at the end of my post. Most of you know that my serious posts end on a funny note, because I'm not one to take life too seriously for very long. However, it was a shitty thing to do.

Mama Bear is heading back into her cave for a while. She is working on an ulcer and will probably take a sleeping pill and crash to just make this day end.

Okay, so you said some things in anger. That was a mother's anger, expressed after sitting in helpless silence while your sweet girl was benched for nothing. Others may not agree with what you say, but I will fight forever for your RIGHT to say it on YOUR blog. As I recall, there were no last names, no team names, no community names - so where's the harm? For goodness sake, Mama Bear, if the truth hurts some people, that's their issue, not yours. I love you. This too shall pass.


Grandma Bear <3 <3 <3

I always feel that way when I speak out. I typically have a very very long fuse and then blow up in a huge explosion on the poor soul who was the last one to hit me. Don't be too hard on yourself. And it is your blog! Say what you want!

I haven't been here for so long I almost missed all the fun! When I heard Bradie laughing hysterically from the other room I had to check your blog. The letter was gone :( but good thing for Google Reader which kept it safe for me to read over and over and over.

I love 'REAL' people that make 'REAL' mistakes and make 'REAL' apologies when they know they are deserved.

I like you Rhonda! Thanks for keepin' it REAL!

I´ve been without internet for a few days, so I´m not sure what you wrote, but will go back to see (if it´s still there). But I´m sorry it got Cassie into trouble. I´m sure you were just venting and that is what a blog is supposed to be for. So you would think....
