Grace and Abby wanted to go play outside, and we were looking for Grace's winter coat. We searched high. We searched low. We searched every logical place (and a few illogical ones for good measure). Our search was fruitless.
Me: "Grace, if we have to buy you a new coat you'll have to do some jobs to earn some money to pay for part of it."
Grace: "But Mom, if I give you my money I won't have enough money to pay for college!"
Who knew I was raising such a financially aware 3-year-old?
Fortunately Abby said a prayer and found Grace's coat a short while later.(Three cheers for sensible older siblings!)
