I have become what I once mocked. Today my daughter told me she loved me (and I truly believe she does) undoubtedly setting me up for something she wants. I bought it hook line and sinker. I am now financier for the whims of a four year old. I try to moderate the influences of the media but we do have the Barbie, the Barbie pool (with slide), and a goodly portion of the Barbie wardrobe. She has learned her craft well. I do remember how to say "no" and I do so judiciously. But I'm a sucker for flattery.
