self confidence

StinkyMan climbed in the car after school today and was getting all strapped in when his teacher walked by and said "Goodbye, StinkyMan!" He looked mighty insulted and said "Why does Ms. Teacher always say goodbye to me?" in a really grumpy way.

I asked "Did you want her to say something else?"

"Yes" he said "She is supposed to say 'Thank you for coming to school today StinkyMan.' You hafta say thank you when somebody does somepin (something) nice for you."

So apparently StinkyMan thinks he is gracing the teachers at school with his oh-so-important presence 4 days a week out of the goodness of his heart. What other reason could those women possibly have to get out of bed in the morning?

And Peanut, when asked today if she looked pretty said "Of course I pretty!" and ran off, with a ponytail flip.

What is that business about the self esteem of middle children? I don't think we have that issue here.
