We were at Wal-mart.
We walked past the Sporting Goods section.
He saw a display case with guns in it.
Isaiah: "Ooh, look, Mommy, guns."
Me: "Yes, Isaiah, I see them.
Isaiah: "Can we buy one?"(with excitement and wonder in his voice)
Me: "No, Isaiah, we can't buy a gun today."
Isaiah: "Oh, their not on sale?"
That really made me laugh. He never really questioned that we weren't buying a gun because a 3 year old doesn't need a gun. He just assumed it was because they weren't on sale.
That made me smile. I am so glad I am instilling in him that we spend our money wisely.
Now, maybe we should work on the children armed with guns issue!!
