DD was her true self, too. When we first arrived at the school, it was obvious that the principal (an aquaintance from my earlier years as a school administrator and board member) was having a tough morning dealing with a very rebellious child. The school officers were eventually called to handle the situation. When the principal came back into the office where DD and I were waiting he smiled and started this conversation.
Principal: Hi. How are you? What brings you here today?
Me: Our little one is in speech here.
DD: I’m the bigger one!
Principal: Yes, I see. You are really growing.
Me: Looks like you’ve had a busy morning.
Principal: Sighing…Yes, I have.
DD: Just a little TOO busy, huh? (Another one of my "most embarassing moments")
Luckily, the principal just smiled and said, “She’s very intuitive too. Isn’t she?”
(Just another justification for home schooling DD) LOL
