A conversation with Emily:
Emily: Mommy, can we have my birthday at Disneyland?
Me: No, I don't think so.
Emily: Why not?
Me: Well, Disneyland is very expensive it would just cost too much for all of us to go.
Emily: But everyone in my class has their birthday at Disneyland!
Me: I suppose their parents must have more money than we do.
Emily: But I can see in their pockets (meaning her classmates) and they have one dollar. That must be enough to get into Disneyland.
Me: I still don't think so.
Then she changed the subject and started talking about the upcoming weekend. I just thought that was so cute and showed the simplicity of this child's thinking. I wish it was just a dollar to get into Disneyland!!
