Overheard

On the way home from our quick stop at the grocery story after dropping Alden off to school:

Lucy: "Mom, how much do those candy spencers cost?"
Mom: "Candy what?"
Lucy "Candy spencers, you know or toy spencers?"
Mom: "Do you mean those candy Dispensers that you put a quarter in and turn the little nobbly thing?"
Lucy: "Yeah, those. How much do they cost?"
Mom: "umm, I have no idea why?"
Lucy:" Cause I want one in my room."
Mom: "hee hee, oh honey, people don't really just have those in their houses."
Lucy: "Well when I grow up I'm gonna have one in MY house."
Probably driven on because every time we go to any grocery story my kids ask for the candy and/ or toys in those things. And we rarely ever do it. Today she didn't even ask, but I guess seeing them still stuck out in her mind :) And yes I know there are little ones you can buy.

Tell her she could TOTALLY have on when she's grown up in her house. It'll be a huge party hit! And it'll make her some cash!
