My child has been hounding me to get him another webkinz. I keep saying no and he keeps trying to explain to me that he NEEDS it for the website. He can still play games, but his full membership has expired, and he NEEDS it!!!!!! He can't live without it!!!! I think he'll wither away to nothing if he doesn't get it, and NOW!!!!!!!
OMG! Driving me crazy! I try to explain that I don't have the money, he has too many already, all his stuffed animals attract dust mites and they are all over the toys AND he has a severe allergy to them. Will he listen? Of course not, he tells me I can give my friends 2 of his toys and then he'll still be down a toy. How do you argue with that? I've been telling him for months that he has too much and we need to get rid of some stuff. Smart kid.
He is the child that whines everytime we go to the store and I don't buy him something. So needless to say, I try to avoid taking him shopping with me because he whines a lot. This morning we returned bottles from our house and my parents house. (they hoard their bottles) we got $14 back. I gave my child $2 for helping me at the redemption center. He was upset that I wouldn't spend the rest on a webkinz!! Aaaarrrrghhhh! He cried all the way home, saying he only wants this one thing so "What the heck?" why won't I get it for him? He'll even give me the $2 to help. I've shattered his world, he can't survive without it, sobbing as if the world is ending. Then, 10 minutes later he calls my mother to play together on the webkinz web site, laughing and it appears as if we've made it throu this crisis...... But later today, I'm sure I'll be asked why I can't just buy him a webkinz, because he really needs it and can't survive without it. Having forgotten that he enjoyed himself without it for well over a year now.
Yesterday it was a build-a-bear he needed, today a webkinz, what will tomorrow bring? Heaven knows. But I anxiously await tomorrows battle......
