OK, DD1 is now in 3rd grade. Never so much as a note home from her teacher.
DD2? Has been in school for exactly 6 days now. What happened tonight?

"Hi, Dodi? This is DD2's kindergarten teacher...."
Turns out nothing bad had happened, but DD2 isn't participating. At all. She sits at the back of the group and hides her work. She doesn't ever raise her hand, and she doesn't answer questions the teacher asks her. She had to miss centers today while she did her worksheet, and she cried. Nothing we can't overcome with a little TLC... but this is the same teacher who had DD1 - who is like Arnold Horshack* when she knows the answer to something, and (as her preschool teacher so delicately put it to us in our very first parent/teacher conference) "DD1 likes to Share Information." (She tends to be a touch chatty.)
Bless their hearts! I wouldn't have ever imagined I'd be the mom to two so very different children... because they're both girls - so how different can they be? (There aren't enough words to answer that question!)
