“You didn’t buy me any cupcakes.”
“You didn’t buy me that big car.”
“You didn’t get me any medicine.”
“You didn’t let me go into that room!”
“You’re not a very good daddy!”
It’s true, when we went to the supermarket I didn’t buy Lily any cupcakes as requested, nor did I get her the giant die-cast car she saw; and we were there to get medicine for her sister, not her. And finally, I wouldn’t let her go into the play room… it would have been difficult to explain that I don’t really trust her well-being to a minimum wage highschooler, let alone explain the “must be potty-trained” policy.
However, I think condemning me as “not a very good daddy” is a little harsh, and I plan to appeal.
