And most of the time, I never really get a straight answer.
Every so often though, we parents hear an anecdote that makes us beam with pride. Yesterday, I had one.
A mom of a girl in Amy's class told me that her daughter Em is very shy. Amy apparently often gives her hugs to make her feel comfortable. Em has come home telling her mother that Amy is her best friend.
My kind girl is still my kind girl - even though she gives us attitude at home, lost her manners for a bit this weekend (they came back), and now ignores us when she does not like what we have to say!
