More Follow Up: How Do I Stop Being Impulsive?

My daughter has been really wanting a bunny rabbit.  Yes.  A real one.  For the past few weeks, it has been

"I'm saving for a bunny.  No, three bunnies.  Their names will be ……."


"I really want rabbits, Dad.  Real ones.  No, Dad, you can't feed them to the hawks!"

This has been going on for nearly three weeks.

Monday, on the way home from Indiana, Melea announces that she no longer wants rabbits.  She wants an iPod instead.

I am so glad we had TIME on our side.   It is amazing how TIME can really diminish the "I Want That!" moment into a "Nah. I Don't Want That!" moment.  Nice!
