We're in Trouble

It's official. If Pre-K is a sign, we're in a lot of trouble. Last weekend, we were at Little Miss's friend's birthday party. The kids were running around screaming and the adults sat in the corner and chatted. One mom said her son went out of his way to buy Little Miss a special Valentine's Day card and chocolate. Another mom said her son colored her a picture. Last month, another little boy gave her a ring on the playground. She doesn't talk about them in return, and I never see her interact with them, but I guess because she's indifferent to them, they all just vie for her attention. I have seen her act all silly over some of the boys, but she doesn't do it as much as she did last year or earlier this year. 

Actually, you can see her try to be like the girls or play with the girls. Currently, there are 3 girls and 7 boys in the class. However, the girls are 6 months younger (which is a lot at this age) and quiet while Little Miss is definitely not quiet. She will sit and read and draw more than the boys, but she won't sit as long as the other girls. Plus, she's used to playing with her cousins - an older and younger boy - so boys don't intimidate her. It'll be interesting to see her once she's in a larger kindergarten class.
