Princess Economics

Trying to throw some economics into a birthday cash discussion tonight.

Jane, you've got some money, you can buy 2 games for your leapster, or you could buy one and save the rest.

She wasn't that interested in saving it. So, Mike said, "Don't you want a car someday?".

She responded, "Princesses do NOT drive cars."

I said, "How do they get places, then?"

Jane says, "In a CARRIAGE."

I say, "Well, you have to have money to buy a carriage, and a horse, and hay for the horse...and someone to drive the carriage."

She says, "No, Daddy can drive it, you guys will be my servants."

Oh. Wonderful.
