My 10 year old daughter says she wants an ipad for Christmas.
I told her to quit smoking crack and.....NO.
(Okay, I didn't tell her to quit smoking crack. But I did tell her no.)
She wanted to know "Whhhyyyyyy?"
My response: "What does a 10 year old need with an ipad? And do you realize how much they cost? NO."
So of course after she asked me three more times about getting an ipad I asked her why she wanted one so badly.
"When our Sunday school teacher asked what we wanted for Christmas, EVERYONE else said they wanted an ipad except me! I just wanted an American Girl doll and accessories. Someone made fun of me."
"They are all just saying they want one because everyone else is saying they want one!"
Then I showed her a video on YouTube of lemmings jumping off a cliff.
It was my hip, high-tech way of asking her "If all your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?"
