I wish there was a way to make children understand the concept of money. Here's the closest I've gotten:
*5 year old sees an extravagant ball pit online*
5 yr old: "Oh we're buying that!"
Me: "We are?"
Me: "Do you have money?"
Me: "Then I don't think we're buying that!"
5yo: "Oh, right. I forgot I need money."
I guess we're slowly building character one rejection at a time??? 😂
