We went to La Hacienda today for lunch, and Lexi discovered the vending machines by the front door that have cheap trinkets, bouncy balls, and candy in them. One of the machines had stickers from one of the cartoons she watches regularly. Of course, she wanted some “dickers”.
This was the conversation we had:
Lexi: I want some Won[d]er Pets dickers!
Me: You have to put money in to get the stickers out. Do you have any money?
Lexi: (Pause) No, I go store, buy some money.
Twenty minutes later, while walking through Target:
Me: We need to buy new shoes, and some sheets for Lexi, and a present for Daddy…
Lexi: And some money!
If it were only that easy…
