Kindergarten Advice

Dear Dr. Sadie,
I've heard, that you will start kindergarten soon. That sounds really exciting, will there be new students? Because I'll soon start at a new school and I'm a little nervous on how to make friends. I know you have a lot of friends because you are a wonderful person, uhm I mean princess of course. So I was wondering if you have some super secret tips on how to make friends with new people?

I love you lots and I'm sending hugs and kisses,

your big sister,

I just try them to ask them questions about themselves. You actually need to know friends more than just their name and favorite color. You actually have to know them to be friends. So you have to make friends by talking to them and getting them to tell you some interesting things about themselves, and then you can become great friends with them.

Maybe if they don't talk much, you can ask them questions in sign language. If they know sign language, they can sign back. And maybe if they say "water coffee" with their hands (like my friend did), you can just laugh.

I love you so much, Feli. I miss you so much, too. I can't wait until you come back.

Birthday Blues

Dear Dr. Sadie,

I am having a birthday soon. It's not a milestone birthday or anything, but I find myself feeling old, depressed and generally sad about aging. What can I do to shake the birtday blues?

- Feeling Older but not Wiser

Maybe you should try to not feel sad. Sometimes you forget how sad you are when you're having a lot of fun.

If you want to have a good birthday, you should have a lot of fun. You could decorate a lot of placemats and have a fancy party. I'm getting older, too, and I like big, boomy birthdays. A "boomy" birthday is big and exciting. You could have fireworks and get crazy. That sounds fun to me.

Boy Crazy

Dear Dr. Sadie,

How do you know if a boy likes you?

- Wondering

If he spends tons and tons of time with you, he likes you. I wonder if you want this boy. You're a girl, of course. So I think you want this boy to like you.

He should say nice things about you and go on dates with you. You should go out to eat to a restaurant. I think you should go to McDonalds. They serve such good food like Chicken Nuggets. And it comes with prizes. If you want to win a prize, go to McDonalds. [Singing] Old McDonald had a farm, EIEIO. I guess they named the restaurant after the song. Who does something like that - naming a restaurant after a song? My friend Errol named a Lego after me, so I guess it's OK.
