I am NOT spoiled

On Sunday we had to attend the BF's niece's seventh birthday party. Thankfully it was just family and not the overly sugared pack of unruly children that often plagues these events.

Well of course the birthday girl was eager to open her gifts and when she came to ours she opened the card and slammed it down with a shrieks of "I am not spoiled!" See the card that was picked out has a Happy 4th birthday motif and it was not realized until I was wrapping the gifts. So I found a card that I meant to send to a friend with a picture of a dog on it that said "Enjoy being spoiled and adored on your special day." So that is what triggered the outburst in which all eyes were on us. Thankfully, her mom read the card outloud and the looks dissipated.

Later her uncle (the BF) explained what the card meant and how there was a difference with being spoiled and being a spoiled brat. It went over her head as most things do at that age!. But now at least her sister can identify the difference between a spider and insect. Ahh progress...

Oh no! That's a hilarious story! At least she wants to be NOT spoiled at this age.

Well she is spoiled we suspect that she was teased that so that she equates spoiled with brat.

I guess it is all about perception and keeping up with the Jones Jrs. of the world.

It could be a frequent rebuke from her parents or grandparents: "Stop acting like a spoiled brat!" Funny story.
