Maybe Daphne is just a little envious of how much you know about animals.” “I never thought of that,” said Lizzie. “But, Mom, do you think I’m bossy sometimes?” For a second, Mom didn’t say anything. “Mom?” asked Lizzie. “Sometimes, yes,” Mom finally said. “You do have a way of ordering people around — your brothers, for example.
