The Bully!

We take Aashini to the park a lot of afternoons (it's right next to our house) and let her play around with the kids at the park. Well, the other day, Aashini got to experience her first bully. Sure, sometimes kids are mean to each other, but then you have the bully.... The kid that is mean just to be mean and picks one kid to pick on... Meet our bully: Arun...
In this picture, you can see that Arun has taken Aashini's ball (He would actually spike it out of her hand!). Now, at first, Aashini didn't mind :) She likes to throw the ball back and forth with the other kids, and she likes to share her ball... BUT Arun just took her ball and stood there taunting her....In Walks the HERO! (the boy in the teal blue shirt)...
Hero boy did not like how Arun was treating Aashini, so he went after him to get the ball back! Look at that determined look on his face! There was a little bit of a scuffle...
Aashini was watching her Hero from a safe distance :)
Hero boy got the ball!! BUT, right as he was giving it to Aashini, Arun took it again... and the whole process started all over (and happened like that multiple times)...
Finally the "older kid" came to the rescue :) He took the ball back and told Arun to quit. Good job older kid!
(notice that we're just watching this and taking pictures :)... it was pretty entertaining)
Later, Aashini got on the merry-go-round and Arun was next to her and just started pinching her... The ball situation didn't really bother her, but the pinching did. It was so sad - she just looked at Arun and made this face that seemed to say that she was so confused why he would do that... Then she cried - LOUD! :)
So then she decided to play with the nicer kids :)

Haha! That was pretty entertaining to read. I felt like we needed some cool Bollywood dance numbers to go with it!

So funny!! I love the Hero's determined face. Poor Aashini, getting pinched for no reason. And I too was laughing that you were taking pics instead of helping out. :) I would've done the same thing. And who needs help, anyway, when you have the Hero and the Older Kid around?

WOW! That's pretty funny. I would probably be taking pics too! Or a video, haha. Yay for the Hero!

Hahahahahaa!!! Classic!! Thank God for heroes!! I love Aashini's face in all the pictures. She's just like "wow, what's gonna happen next?" Did you trip the bully when he walked past you??

This post was hilarious! We were laughing so hard! I am glad to see that there are still HERO's in this world.

I'm glad you let them work it out, Aashini could see which way is the nicer way, without pushing or grabbing back and she will be the hero when she grows up. Where was Meannies mother anyway?
