Duckie has had 3 play dates in four days. She attended Girl Scout day camp last week, attended a birthday party, started cheer practice, attended a festival, and had gymnastics as well as a swim lesson. She hasn't been pleasant toward me or husband all the time, but her unpleasantness is pretty typical of a slightly overtired child, in my humble opinion. She has had absolutely zero problems dealing with her friends and other children and has been respectful and appropriate to the adults. I have to admit that I had been concerned that she was adding to the bullying problems she has had with A because she's a difficult child. But they've had a lot space this summer and Duckie's behavior and attitude continues to improve. I think the stress of dealing with A (and A's behaviors) have really affected Duckie in the past. I like my daughter without A's influence.
