One thing I never have to worry about with Princess Nagger is her socialization skills. Sure, I was a tad bit worried after all the judgy moms looked down their noses at me for my choice not to send Princess Nagger to preschool and wait until Kindergarten to send her into the den of wolves.
My fears were laid to rest, however, when she happily accepted another little girl’s invitation to have a play date – and got off at that girl’s bus stop instead of her own. Sure, my heart stopped until the bus driver went back and retrieved her, but at least I didn’t have to worry about her lacking in the socialization aspect.
Over the subsequent years she has been a leader amongst her peers, getting her friends to play all sorts of crazy games which involve pretending they’re dinosaurs, or warrior cats, or whatever her current imagination deems the character of the day. She’s definitely a social butterfly, and loves chatting on the phone – something I’m terrible at doing myself. I avoid the phone like a plague. But not Princess Nagger, she loves chatting with her friends any chance she gets:
When I was taking random shots of her on the phone the other day, because I needed a picture – any picture – to decorate my blog, she paused in her conversation and asked:
PN: “Are you going to blog about this?”
Me: “Yes. Yes I am.”
I sure love that kid.
