While listening to her new favorite song by For Kings and Country called Priceless, Alaina was wondering what priceless meant. I told her it meant that something means so much to you that you wouldn't sell it for any amount of money. Our conversation went a little like this:
Me: You are priceless to me. I wouldn't sell you for any amount of money.
A: Not even a million dollars?
Me: Not even a billion dollars, not even 10 billion dollars. I love you too much.
A: What about 100,000 billion dollars?
Me: Nope. Look at it this way. Would you sell Mommy for a billion dollars?
A: Yes, because I'd still have Daddy!
Well played, Alaina!
Here's another one:
A: Mom, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Me: Ah, don't you think I've already grown up?
A: No.........Nana hasn't died yet!
She doesn't think you grow up until you are a grandma. Funny girl!
A: Mom, I'm not trying to be mean. I'm not, but sometimes it looks like your going to have another baby. Not to be mean. I'm not trying to be mean.
I got her message loud and clear. (And we had a little discussion about how we use our words to uplift and encourage others.) Oy! This girl!
