Penny’s or Pennies?

Posted on December 9, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , |

This past weekend we needed to run an errand that included a stop at JC Penny’s.  Prior to leaving the house, Punk had found a penny on the ground.  She was adamant that she had to take the penny to the store with her to spend.  I kept trying to tell her she really wouldn’t be able to buy anything with her penny, but she insisted.  On the way there she kept talking about her penny and the store.   I again point out she won’t be able to buy anything.  Finally she explains, “but mommy, we’re going to the pennies store.”

Of course.  It was so obvious after she said it, but I was in such a rush I didn’t give it a thought.  It’s easy to do, this time of year especially.  But I’m really going to try and slow down a bit and pay attention to the kids so I don’t miss those special moments.
