Unexpected.

Lizzy is a total fire ball...except when it comes to someone picking on her! I will never forget watching Tina whack Lizzy in the head with a plastic tube OVER AND OVER AND OVER and all she did was stand there and cry. I let it go on for a minute to see if she would EVER walk away, fight back, anything...and she didn't. She just stands there, screaming, and takes it. Obviously I ended up stepping in but, we have the same thing going on with new boy. He will sit there and scratch her neck with his nails and she doesn't do anything except cry. Obviously I get him off her as soon as possible, but if it was up to Lizzy she would let people just beat her I guess.

Other than letting him do this stupid stuff to her, she has been fine with the kids over all. She hasn't been too whiny and seems to enjoy having them around and plays with them. Very different from when Tina was here and she screamed her head off for 6 months....

Wow. I'm not even sure if that's a good or a bad thing. Good that you're not having to break up full-blown fights constantly, but bad that her tendency is to stand there and allow someone beat up on her.

Ditto Tammy. Makes me want to cry thinking about this fiery child just letting people hurt her. Breaks my heart.
