Monday, December 1, 2014 set Audrey straight

...sort of.

Mark paid the kids their allowance yesterday.


It had been a few weeks since we've paid them.  

Some weeks we are better than other weeks about paying them on time.

This is a long winded way of saying Audrey had acquired 'a lot of buck' (this is how she references bills be it a one or a five.) and she was reveling in her good fortune.

I happened to be in her room when she came upstairs to put her money into her piggybank.  This was our conversation:

Audrey:  Oh...friends may come and go...but money is FOR-EVER!! (I think I may have heard her cackle.)

Me:  Um.  Audrey.  Honey.  I think you have that backward.  The saying is:  Money may come and go, but friends are forever.  Sweetie.

Audrey:  Nope.  Friends will die someday.

Me:  Speechless.  

I learned later from Isabella that Audrey picked up this line from a television show she had watched.  Phew.  Thank goodness.
