It was Ella's sixth birthday last Tuesday. I'd seen her the previous weekend, and given her her present then - a Flame Red Game Boy Advance SP and a copy of Pokemon Ruby. She was rather pleased with this.
Then, on her birthday, the dog ate it. Can you imagine, six years old, and your new Game Boy gets destroyed, on your birthday? She took it as you'd expect her to take it.
So this weekend, I got her a new one. There goes this month's discretionary funds...
This one is staying at my house.Posted to Parenting by Simon Brunning at July 05, 2004 05:28 PM
