Okay, I’m a horrible parent – but I have a great idea. You know how we just moved in to our new house? Have you ever used Google maps, the one with satellite pictures? Well, they’re pretty detailed, you can see people’s backyards, where people’s houses are, and I thought it’d be nice to look at our neighborhood, see what’s where, and see what’s on the next street over, etc.
So, umm, how weird and materialistic would it be to tell my kid to make friends with the kids whose houses have pools? It is 109 degrees today, it’s not like its without merit for her to want to have friends who have a pool. And its not like I would tell her not to make friends with people who don’t have pools, or would force her to hang out with people she didn’t like.
I said I was a horrible parent.
