    So glad I taught my daughter when she was young that the world doesn’t owe her anything….her DS just broke and she says….well I know what I want for Christmas (her birthday is in August but she still said Christmas) was outside the other day and one of the neighborhood kids had a complete melt down because his ball popped and his mom HAD to go buy him a new one none of the other one’s were good enough…so they got in their car and left!!! Ugh
