This time, we were at Target shopping for school supplies.
Elizabeth, the 9-year-old, wanted anything pink and got a new backpack and matching lunch box.
Emily, the 12-year-old, decided her old lunch box and backpack were perfectly fine and opted not to buy anything.
As we left, Elizabeth spotted some totally blinged-out scissors covered in colored rhinestones.
And thus, our sentences.
Emily: “School supplies aren’t supposed to be sparkly. You have to use them!”
Elizabeth: “Ooooh! They match my bag!”
