Miriam and I were at Costco the other day and these are some of the actual comments she made during our shopping trip:
"That's too expensive."
"Is it the right size?" and "Is it size two-and-a-half?"
"It's on a good sale."
"It's not on a good sale."
"Maybe we'll buy it later."
"We forgot grapes!"
I didn't know she'd been listening so closely to all the things I say when we're shopping! And I was minorly mortified that statement number one, "It's too expensive," was the thing she said most often, followed closely by "It's not on a good sale."
Kids really are mirrors of ourselves.
