Another Example of How the Apple Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree
(This is a post from my deleted blog.)

I mentioned previously that my five year old has been thinking about how he could save money on his first car purchase. I also mentioned that this frugal-mindedness places him solidly in the image of his father (okay, I am pretty frugal too, but not as much as Dad). Last week, Dad was away for one night. I decided to take the kids to Ben & Jerry's for a treat. When I mentioned this to my Favorite Boy, he responded in such a way that I actually thought his father was talking.

He said, "Mom, we already have ice cream in the freezer. We can eat that for free. If we go to Ben & Jerry's, we will have to pay. Why don't we just eat ice cream here?"

Ah yes, he makes his Dad proud! However, this wise answer came back to haunt him. He has been begging to go to Chuck-E-Cheese (we rarely go there), so I decided to use his reasoning on him. I said, "Son, we already have pizza in the freezer. If we go to Chuck-E-Cheese, we will have to pay for the pizza. I think we should just stay home!"

For some reason, he decided he didn't like this reasoning any more. :) Just so you know, we did not go to Ben & Jerry's, and I do plan to take him to CEC some time in the near future.
