OK< there is this kid my daughter knows from school that I simply do not like. At 8 years old, their personality is their own, but their attitudes are essentially still their parents! And this kid is so snobby and nasty.... Anyway, so the other day I am at the school and this girl says to my DD, "Only poor people have chickens in their yard!" (Add snarky tone yourself...) I watched to see if I should step in. But DD gives her this look! Amused disdain And said calmly, "Well, when this depression gets worse don't come to me for eggs!" I was very proud of her. It may not have been the nicest thing to say, but how clear she is about what's important!!
