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?
What is the funniest thing your child has ever said when they were asked what they want (or think they are getting) for Christmas? Comment below and let me know =)
