Sweetness From Emily

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!!

Birthdays don't have to be expensive or "different". The child just needs to know it is his special day and he is loved, and that can be done anywhere!

Yup, planning for disneyland takes at least 1/2 a paycheck with entrance, food, suvineirs (sp?) parking, etc. Please invite us. Mom's yard would be great with all the cousins around.

Emily is so sweet.
