Last week was the Scholastic Book Fair at the elementary school. Little S was so excited as this was the first one that he would be able to go to alone and pick out books.
So I put some money in an envelope and told Little S that he would be able to get 2 or 3 books depending on how much each book cost. Then I went on to say my typical speech before I sent him off to spend 'his' money:
"Remember you can get as many books as you have money for but" and he stopped me in my tracks and he finishes with:
"I know Mum, no pencils, posters or other crap!"
Guess the third child really picks up on what is continuously said to the older two.
