Here is what happened today at the store:
Me: "I realized the pencil case I bought you is a bit small. How about I get you a nicer, bigger one? With more features!"
My son: "No, Mommy. It's fine. This will do."
Me: "Are you sure? Those are so much better than what you have right now! And they come in green! And they're a brand name!"
My son: "No, really. What I have is fine. I don't need anything new. Really."
He probably isn't even my son. Maybe they switched him at the hospital, right after he was born. Maybe somewhere out there is a shopping crazy boy who loves brand names and has no problem replacing new stuff with brand new stuff, stuck with a shopping savvy, frugal mom!!
