Making Friends Part ?

I have been making lots of 3-5 year old friends lately. It hasn't been easy, let me tell you. That age group is a rough crowd. I have been trying to get an in because Ana requires some assistance in making the first move and in seeing the other side as friend not foe.

I have to be honest, I can see why she can get confused. I tried to make friends yesterday with a little girl that I'll just call Bertha, as I think her personality was just about as sparkling as that name (a preemptive sorry to all of the Bertha's out there that are now composing hate mail to me).

I smiled, she frowned.

She's looking at you mean, Mommy!

"Hi, Friend!" I tried.

"I'm not your friend," says Bertha.

"Would you like to be?"

Scowl, frown, and a possible low growl.

From now on I'm just approaching kids that have Hello Kitty or some other friendly looking creature on their shirts. I know, it's profiling, but I'm scared. Have you seen how sharp their little teeth can be?

I totally hear ya! My mom and Mikayla can make friends with ANYONE and I...I get dirty looks from kids. What's up with that?
