My daughter has learned something new. We bought her a Baby Alive and she has to go a week without any demerits in school and clean her room everyday to earn the baby. Quite frankly I think the baby is a lot creepy, like Chucky. Watch the video and decide for yourself.
All my daughter has been talking about for the last week is this baby doll. She got a demerit on Wednesday (the only one this week) and pitched a huge fit that really surprised her teacher. We were going to let her have it if she didn’t get any more demerits (what can I say, I’m an old softy) and cleaned her room. Today she hasn’t cleaned her room. I told her that she had to clean and I wasn’t giving her any more reminders. If she didn’t clean she wouldn’t get her baby. Later she was playing instead of cleaning so I told her she wouldn’t be getting her baby. Well she somehow come up with the phrase, “Daddy broke my heart.”
Yep, I broke my 5 year old’s heart. I am resolved to stand by what I said but it sure breaks my heart. Sometimes parenting is super awesome and other times it is super suck. Right now it sucks.
