Spoiled? Hmmmm. No, just greatly cherished. (They also hear a lot of "you get what you get, so don't throw a fit" and "If you're gonna pout you gotta get out". They quote those lines to each other. I'm a school teacher so we hold Grammy's School to maintain their pre-school skills. The TV is rarely on. I wish every child I teach could be so spoiled. They do time out for infractions, but I've been known to pull out a wooden spoon for a single "pop". Please don't report me, but their parents didn't suffer from this kind of correction when disrespect or danger was involved.) But ... they do get an awful lot of my dedicated time - you're right about that!
