This Mom Must Have Been On Sale

| USA | Nephews & Nieces

(I am having a conversation with my seven-year-old niece:)

Niece: “Where’d you get your mom?”

Me: “I didn’t get her from anywhere. You don’t buy moms.”

Niece: “Yeah, you do.”

Me: “No, you don’t.”

Niece: “Yeah, you do.”

Me: “Oh, really? Where do you buy moms?”

Niece: “At the store.”

Me: “What store? There’s no such thing as a mom store.”

Niece: “Any store!”

Me: “They don’t sell moms at Wal-mart.”

Niece: “Uh-huh. I seen them.”

Me: “Well, moms and their kids are at Walmart together, but the kids don’t buy their moms.”

Niece: “Yeah, they do.”

Me: “No, [Niece], you can’t buy your mom.”

Niece: “Yeah, you can.”

Me: “Well, I’ve never seen moms for sale anywhere.”

Niece: “I have.”

Me: “Really? How do you get them?”

Niece: “You just go into the aisle where it says, ‘Moms,’ and then you wave and say ‘Mommy, it’s me!’” *waves arm to demonstrate*

Me: “I don’t think that’s how that works.”

Niece: “Yes, it is.”

Me: “No, it’s not.”

Mom & Family Friend: “No, it’s not.”

Me: “That’s not how it works.”

Niece: “Yes, it is.”

Me: “Well, you’ll have to show me this freaky magic then, because I’ve never seen it.”

Niece: “But then I’d have to take you to the store.”

Me: “Yeah, you would.”

Niece: “But I can’t drive.”

Me: “I could drive.”

Niece: “Yeah, but I’d have to take you to the store with me.”

Me: “So?”
