M's grandparents gave Claire and Scott some money for Christmas so that M's parents could take the kids shopping to pick out something. A couple days after Christmas, the kids went to Target with their grandparents to spend their money.
When I met back up with Claire afterward, I asked her what she got. She told me she got the game Cooties and then in the same breath announced, "It was only $5!" Every time we talked about what she got, I'm pretty sure she spent more time being excited about the fact that the game was only $5 than she did actually being excited about the game or the other toy she bought.
I wonder where she got the idea that after shopping you should come home and brag about the great deals you got? Well . . . at least she has her priorities straight???
