Losing fights

After insisting for an hour that she needed a new dress; Niki got one. I lost out. I was not consistent. Not firm. At least it's a piece of clothing that will surely be used.

ps. Have 4-year old? Don't bring them along while shopping for birthday gifts for their older siblings. Especially is the 4-year olds b-day is in December. Empathy, selfless generosity and patience are not the cardinal virtues of the sub-5 crowd. I knew this, still I did it. Because there was no other solution. Parenting is such a losing game, yet you feel like a winner at least once a day. Not much but enough for me.
