Recently Rhea caught this fancy for Nemo & wanted me to get her one. Within days there was a marine-aquarium in the corner of our living room. The next weekend Rhea picked a Nemo toy at a toy shop; she looked at me and said “Ahh, this is what I wanted!”
Whoa! A toy? I just blew up a 35grand on a marine-aquarium!
Buying that tank for Rhea was probably just an excuse! I subconsciously got myself one. How often do we, as parents, satisfy our unfulfilled childhood desires pretending it to be the child’s wish-factory? I still remember that white color Hero Champ, remote control car, video games with joy sticks…!
