My daughter who just turned four says to me out of the blue yesterday, "You're a whiney baby and a scaredy cat."
I said, "Oh, you noticed."
She said, "Yes, I'm very smart."
She's not like me, and I don't believe is in any danger of becoming like me. She's very outspoken and unafraid of people. I'm not sure what's going to happen when she hits the teen years. Teenagers can be fairly ruthless. I had the best mom in the world, and I went through a period where I wasn't very nice to her at all. It wasn't anything she did, though I may not have been able to admit that at the time, it was just me being a jerk. I think sometimes it's a necessary part of growing up. I grew up, and I'm ashamed of it now. Your daughter will come back around I bet. Mom's always get the brunt of growing pains I think.
