Navigating the World with a Gender-Fabulous Child

Quite Upset

I heard that a staff member was speaking about R today. This staff member called her a monstrosity. Supposedly  no one knows which staff member  it was but we all know that’s  a lie.
I am hoping  that said staff member  is so disturbed  by R’s presence  at the school that she quits and doesn’t  come back next year. I have a feeling  who it was but a feeling isn’t proof. Luckily  R doesn’t  know and didn’t  hear about  it.

R’s 1st Day

It went SO well that she feels comfortable  wearing  a skirt tomorrow  :).
Another child came up to my boss (the breakfast  and lunch aide) and asked how R got permission  to do this bc she has been telling her parents for years that she’s not a girl, she’s a boy and they just won’t  listen to her. Broke my heart.
One little girl was a little confused  about the bathroom  situation  but R, the principal  and the bullying  specialist  explained it well.
Again, this little girl is my HERO!

R had a great weekend

She asked us to announce  her transition. She then spent an entire day with her cousins  as herself. No one used the wrong name or misgendered  her. Sunday  the Easter  Bunny  got her new name right.
Then came Monday  night. The thought of going to  school on Tuesday  as a boy made her so upset. She originally  wanted to wait until  this summer to fully transition, but that’s  all changed. As of April  13 she intends  on being Rose ALL THE TIME.
Meeting  with her principal  today.
Here’s pics of her easter stuff
