Apparently, all of the other nine and ten year olds in Nataleigh's class have iPhones, so now she wants one. I tried to explain to her that she is far too young, and she kept pushing. Then I tried to tell her that materialism is not a pretty thing. That made her mad. I told her that she does not need an iPhone, and she proceeded to insist that she did because everyone in school was going to make fun of her otherwise.
Where did this diva child come from? Why is my lovely, normally compliant daughter acting out like this? Is Christian school really doing this to her?
I guess I could always do like my parents did... if you want it bad enough, you can work for it!
