The girls and I are grocery shopping in Walmart today and this is how our conversation went:
Mackinley pointing to Princess alphagetti's - Mom, can we buy that?
Me - Not today sweetie.
Mackinley - Oh. Then it's not on sale?
How embarrassing! I'm not sure why I was embarrassed really, but I was.
She then proceeded to ask if things were on sale for the rest of our shopping trip. I usually only buy stuff that is on sale. Not fresh produce or bread, stuff like that...but things that have more selection so there is always something on sale. Stuff like cereal, soup, or just the occasional good sale even though I don't really need it. I know most people shop like that, but for some reason the fact that my 3 year old knew what a sale was, was a shocker for me! I guess they really do learn young!
