Conversations About Money

Recently, I went to the store to buy stuff to make Broccoli Alfredo and when I got home, I realized I was missing the star ingredient--broccoli. I can never remember anything unless I write it down. And because I want to always remember the cute stuff my kids say, I'm going to subject all of you to some more funny conversations with my kids. Bear with me!

Me (mumble mumble years old): When you finish school, we can send out cards telling everyone that you are going to graduate and they'll send you money.
Big Pup (7 years old): How much?
Me: A lot. Like, 100 dollars!
Big Pup: Oh, no, I need 20,000.

Me: I have to go pick up Daddy down the road, can you babysit your little brother?
Big Pup: Ummmm...I've never done that before.
Me: I'll only be gone 10 minutes. He's in his room watching Madagascar. It will be okay.
Big Pup: ....
Me: I'll give you a quarter!
Big Pup: How 'bout a dollar?
