I find it fascinating watching baby girl grow. To learn, to develop, and most of all to see what comes out of her mouth.
It is a popcorn-worthy show ALL on its own.
Like tonight for instance. I was drying her hair after her bath, and the topic somehow moved to work and money. Serious stuff for a 5 year-old, so my ears perked up when she made the observation –
“Mummy, you don’t have to work tomorrow, because you have enough money.”
?? Well I’ll be damned. So, I had a choice in whether I could go or not based on my account? So I asked –
“What about Tato? Why is he working? Does he not have enough money?”
LOL. But that wasn’t even all of it. I thought we were done with the topic until I tucked her in and kissed her goodnight. She randomly popped up with –
“Mummy, you don’t have to work, you have a credit card!”
She shrugged her shoulders and smiled, like it was the simplest and most obvious of solutions to keep Mum home with her forever.
I sat on the bed, and proceeded to tell her in kid-terms, that using credit cards was actually not the best idea, and better reserved for emergencies.
But, can you imagine that for a moment? If that was the case, NO ONE WOULD WORK!
