A friend asked Beth the other day if we were going to sign Anna up
for soccer. Anna had said something about dancing before, so Beth asked
her if she wanted to be a soccer player or if she wanted to dance.
Anna replied, "I want to be a dancing ballerina in my tutu!" She loves
this tutu - everything with the tutu these days. Beth said that we'll
have to ask daddy because dancing costs a lot of money.
Apparently Anna had been thinking about it the rest of the day,
because that night at bedtime, she asked Beth again if she could dance,
and was very distressed when Beth said, "We'll see, we have to ask
daddy" again. Anna then made the suggestion, "But daddy could just buy
some money to have for the dancing!" Hmm, that would be nice depending
on their prices, but a money tree would be better. Maybe it's time for a
little lesson on money and an allowance…
