So my third child Harlee (with a name like that I should have guessed the attitude she would have), realizes on her own that she has been so “bad” that she thinks she is getting a lump of coal for Christmas.
This video was taken back in 2009 while at a Choir Christmas Concert for my oldest daughter. We were waiting for the concert to start when the topic of what everyone wants for Christmas came up. I asked Harlee what she thought she was getting for Christmas and she said a lump of coal. My next thought was to ask her why, but I wanted to record it, so I took out my phone to record what was said next.
When I asked her at the end if she thought she would be better next year, her answer was “that’s a maybe.”
To get the video to play: Please wait about 10 seconds, then press the play button (may need to press it a couple of times). Not sure why it does that!
Harlee is now 15 (almost 16) and not much has changed, except the attitude…it’s MUCH worse! Sometimes I think I should have named her Ann or Mildred. Those seem like “safe” names.
Does anyone else believe that their name defines their attitude? I wonder if a study has every been done on that?
