It's the time of the month and I'm sure this issue won't bother me so much once I've started! Anyway, DD has had a best friend right thru' nursery and reception. My dd is shy, the friend is more confident and sociable. Despite this they've had a really strong bond and loved imaginary play together and little chats etc. The friend has suddenly moved on to a new friend and won't often allow dd to play any more, telling her to go away. DD has another friend but says she's sad because she and her friend used to play 'long games' which other friend doesn't do. I feel for her, but don't want to let her sense it's upset me a bit too. DD is not the type to approach groups of children and join in although loves playing with them once into a game. Someone reassure me this is all typical, don't think i can face the roller coaster of the years ahead of dds friendships.
