Talk about the child ruling the parents . . we have a very good example at Chad and Nicole’s house! 🙂
They have a few packages under the tree and Addie was just begging and begging to open one. Who wants to guess how many packages will remain by the time Christmas Day arrives. They kept telling her no . . you have to wait til Christmas. Finally Chad said “I’ll make a deal with you! If you want to open one present, you have to give up something.” Addie said “OK! I’ll give up the oval!” Nicole said “Oh, that’s what I was hoping she’d give up!”
Isn’t that funny for a 3 year old.
Now when she says she wants a fire truck, a book about penguins and an oval . . they remind her that she gave up the oval to in order to open one package already!
