Shouldn't this happen in 5th grade?

See it all started when Grace's friend dropped by on Saturday because her dad was playing softball in the park. Grace was so excited to spend some time with this little girl because she has never been to our house for a playdate. The next day she told me that she told her "best friend" that this little girl came over to play. Here was the exchange:
me: did you tell EP that so-and-so came over to play?
grace: yea and she was kinda mad
Me: mad? what did she say
grace: she told me that I couldn't have any other friends except her.
me: you don't believe that, do you?
grace: no, but she said that she wouldn't be my best friend anymore if I was friends with anyone else
me: (stunned look)that is pure rubbish!
grace: what's rubbish, mom

She is in Pre-k...they are 5 years old! I mean c'mon, that may be the stupidist thing I have ever heard. Thank God I don't think she took that to heart and will continue to play with other people. Geez!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, girls start their careers as bitches pretty young. Just be glad your daughter is the recipient of the bitchiness, and not the giver.

WOW! That is heavy stuff from a five-year-old. I dread the day when my girls enter the "mean girls" phase; giving or receiving; it's gonna be hard not to take it personally. Luckily, Grace is young enough to not take much to heart yet. -Camille
