You know the type. The mom who says her kid has all A's when yours has all A's and a B? The mom whose kid scored three soccer goals when yours scored two?

Kind of, but it comes with behaviour and how her daughter did this at this age and that at that age.

Haha! My husband! If I say I am tired, his response is I am MORE tired. Or sick, or hot or anything looking for sympathy. He is such a kid!!

I don't, but I also feel that when people think they are trying to be one upped, that the other person is really just trying to relate to the conversation.
