“She’s got you wrapped around her little finger“
”She sure knows how to get what she wants”
I have started hearing people say these things to me recently and it has made me question whether it really is possible to spoil someone who has only been on the planet for six months.
I mean surely she can’t have learnt the art of manipulation already?! She definitely knows what she wants and when she wants it and yes if she doesn’t get it then she will cry until she does (even if its just that she is bored of playing after 5 mins and wants to be held instead) but surely that’s just because she doesn’t know how to talk yet. I mean how frustrated would we be if we wanted something but didn’t know how to ask for it?!
Obviously there are times when it would be useful if she could learn to have a little patience especially if she suddenly wants picking up during the middle of me cooking dinner or when I’m halfway home from town with shopping but how can you teach patience to someone that can’t even understand what you say to them?! I mean if she takes after her father then she will still be lacking patience by the time she’s nearly 30!
So I am going to carry on doing what she wants and when she wants it because I just can’t believe that she is some manipulative genius, and if she is then go her!
