DD#2 is also a social creature in a family who prefers a minimum of social interactions. I had hoped that at school she would be exposed to different things, and maybe find her passion or gift, but so far she is a normal kid...she even behaves at school.

I don't get it--what is there to complain about? You have a kid who is very social, behaves at school, is very active, and loves to play with dolls, which is totally appropriate at age 5. Yes, you will have to set up a lot of play dates, but is that the worst thing in the world?

As far as "gifts" go, social skills are a gift too, and very handy in many professions--like being President of the United States, for example.
