While getting Drew ready to take a field trip with a friend this morning I handed him a ten dollar bill.
"Here's some money to get in. You will only need about half that so bring back the change."
"Awww, man! I can't buy any toys at the gift shoppe?"
"What if I'm hungry and I need food?"
"That's why I packed you a lunch."
"But, what if they have fedoras for five bucks?"
"Okay, if they are selling fedoras for five dollars at the gift store then you may buy one."
He was satisfied after that. I love it when they think they win.
