You never intend for it to happen — it usually just creeps up on you: feeling as though you’re in competition with a friend. Of course you know that you’re not (unless it’s the 1992 Olympics and you’re either Dan or Dave), but it’s really hard not to compare yourself to your peers, especially when they’re friends.

"I wonder who's going to brush their teeth and get into their pyjamas first. Hmmm. Go!" "You know, Mummy could use a massage. Who can give me the most amazing one? GO!"
