Little Girl has somehow learned about a place called Disney World where princesses live and little girls can go visit. When she asked me the other day if we could go, I explained that we would like to one day, but it’s far away.
“We could fly there on an airplane, Mommy!” she suggested.
“Honey, airplane tickets cost money, and we’ll need to buy a few of them so we can all go. We could drive there, but it would take a long time.”
“I have money. I’ll buy my ticket!” and she hurried to fetch her bank.
We counted up $4.73 in her bank, and I explained that plane tickets are usually over $100 each. So she immediately resolved to save her allowance for “a plane ticket to Disney World.”
