I won't try to pretend that we don't spoil our children. We set standards, but they want for little.

The girl lately has had a favorite song on my Rolling Stones CD. As soon as we get in the car, she invariably starts asking to hear it and won't stop pestering me until I play the song for her to sing along with. And, of course, I eventually play it for her.

The name of the song? You Can't Always Get What You Want.
Whoever said real life had no irony?

She is perfect, and the irony is perfect.
I'm so in love with this little girl!

I would not say that allowing a child to listen to a favorite song upon her request qualifies as spoiling the child. If you bought her every new CD or toy when she demanded it, without requiring that she earn it, you might be spoiling her. Might this be a good opportunity to teach her the meaning of irony, though?

Spoiled vs. Well loved.
I think we tend to use the terms interchangably.
