Its so much fun to rock your kid's world, whether its a small thing like getting pizza for dinner, or a huge thing like buying them an iPod. And we did rock her world, believe me. This morning she texted us from her bed. She can do that, now: text. What have I wrought?
The next thing will be a phone. I think its coming in the fall. I will get the cheapest, crap-ass phone I can find, and only let her use it for emergencies. Or if she wants to have a play date. Or if she needs a ride.
After the phone, it will be Proactive. That's coming too, with a pubescent vengeance.
So, spoiled or not? I have no idea. But I sure love that kid, and she thanked us about a hundred times, and she is the happiest fifth grader in the world. She would have been the happiest fifth grader in the world without the iTouch, but it put her over the top.
|Yeah, she's pretty happy...|
