  • Letting her get her nails done (in very light pink so I wouldn’t see it right away… sneaky!)
  • DVDs (claiming that she doesn’t have DVDs at home)
  • Sugary snacks such as chocolate covered pretzels, Dora yogurt and Hello Kitty cookies (claiming that mommy doesn’t get her good snacks)

I rolled my eyes and sighed, and thought about the days when I was a little girl and my mom refused to buy such sassy things.
