This morning, Child Number Two (aged 6) and I set off for a little "Mother/Daughter" alone time. Naturally, on the list of things to do was to hit our favourite jewellery store, where we indulged in a few (make that MANY) pairs of earrings for her newly-pierced ears.
After we settled the bill, she requested to wear her favourite blue dangly pair, and commented as she admired herself in the mirror:
Child Number Two: (shaking her head to make the gemstones twinkle) Thanks, Mum... Gee, I hope I'm not gonna BANKRUPT ya!!
No problem, Kiddo... Just stick to the faux jewellery, please...
