Yeah, that's kind of how it goes . . .

A short while after arriving home from daycare/work, Gavin walks out into the kitchen and announces:

"Momma, Tanis doesn't like me."  (Tanis is a new "friend" at daycare.)

"Why doesn't Tanis like you?"

"Because I'm mad at her."

"Why are you mad at her?"

"Because she's mad at me."

"Why is she mad at you?"

"Because I'm mad at her."

"Oh, okay. Well, why are you mad at her?"

"Because she doesn't like me."

At first, I thought this new "friend" was not being kind to my son, but now I see that even preschoolers are not exempt from the ridiculous complexities of friendships and relationships.  I'm hoping they can sort it out because I sure as hell can't!

  1. Yea, it sure does start early! The cold shoulder, the ignoring, the "I'm not your fiend anymore!" stuff. But the nice thing is, at this age it can be solved in minutes rather than days, weeks or years! :-)
