There is a battle coming here soon. A battle of the wills. One that I think I can predict the outcome.
I have a very serious 10-year-old who is mature beyond her years.
She is responsible.
She is methodical and highly regulated.
She is relentless.
She wants a hamster.
Dad does not.
Currently she is researching all her data, compiling her costs, interviewing friends and preparing a Powerpoint to present why she should be able to have a hamster.
To present to Dad.
Dad is not wanting a hamster.
I think once she is done with him, he will see it her way.
Is there any other way?
My first reaction was – a hamster? No! But I remember having one at 12 years old. I was responsible, methodical and relentless. I might be in her camp on this one.
I for one will enjoy sitting back on this one. For once I am not the ‘bad guy’!
