My daughter #1

You may have noticed that my kids Dayna and Jimmy are quite creative and elaborate when it comes to circumventing authority and testing the limits. My oldest daughter, Nicole is quite the opposite. When she was about five, she called a girl at her school "fat". The girl's dad was right there and got upset. So, that evening, I had a nice long talk with Nicole, and explained that she needed to apologize.

The following morning Nicole, feeling very remorseful, tearfully approached the chubby girl and said in her most sincere voice: "Erin (sob), I am so sorry you are fat!"

I snickered.
