What to buy for a six year old
Our five and a half year old does not seem to suffer from a lack of self-esteem. She recently graded herself 10 out of 10 in a classroom self assessment exercise and yesterday declared herself better at ballet than the ballet teacher (this is the child who can fall over on an empty floor). Recently, after giving herself the most ridiculous fringe of all time which was approximately 0.5cms long and 4cms wide (the rest of her hair is about 45cms long), she declared that everyone thought she looked incredible with her new fringe. Actually, this might have been true, but perhaps she was missing the sarcasm in a few of the adults comments!
Her sixth birthday is coming up, so I asked her what she might like for her birthday, still expecting a kind of cute reply from my small daughter. The list she came up with was extreme:
"Umm, a computer, a telephone, an ipod, a robot dog (she has wanted one of these for about 4 years), real (real???) diamonds, a video camera, umm, that's all," she said.
"What about lego?" I asked, hopefully.
