That makes me very ugly that a four year old is that spoiled.On the other hand. I don't live in a "ritzy" area. I'm among the common, every day people who have to work hard for the things they have. But I tell you this. I appreciate my stuff and all the people around me. Even those who have a job that may be considered lower class than mine. I'm no better a person than the homeless man on the street, nor the millionaire who has a house for every season and one in between. And you know something? They are no better than me either.I know one thing. My son, although at 2.5 he is very spoiled, he will learn and he does know how to appreciate everything he has and everyone who loves him. I would never expect anyone to do something for me that I was not willing to do myself.I kind of rambled off topic, but I hope you get my point.
