Ballet Princess

A co-worker was moaning that his six-year old girl has passed her ballet exam, and now he was going to have to buy her a present.

“She will probably want something expensive,” he sighed.

The next day I inquired how his shopping expedition had gone.

“The most expensive thing she could find that she wanted was $15, and she didn’t want to wait or go to another store.”

“Well, you got out of that one easily then,” I said.

“What she got wasn’t expensive enough. I’m going to have to take her shopping again…”

It’s funny how parents project their values onto their children.
