Finding Penny

This child is strong willed. She's passionate. She's unique. She wants to be pretty, strong and smart. She wants to know about everything. 
Today, she went on a field trip with school to the movies- her first time in a theater. They went to the Movie Tavern, but she kept telling everyone she was going to the Movie Cavern. They watched Finding Nemo. Ten minutes into the movie, during the first shark scene, Miss P lost it. This is the part where severely limiting her screen time backfires on us. She sat next to a teacher, because she was nervous for the scary parts of the movie. But after the shark scene, she was hysterical and they couldn't get her to calm down, so one of the teachers took her to the lobby and sat with her while the rest of her friends finished the movie. She wouldn't go back into the theater. She happily munched on popcorn and talked with the her eyes this was way more fun than watching a scary movie. 
Miss P is very lucky to have an American Girl Doll that Nana won for her at a raffle. She got it for her birthday and also received some hand-me-down AG clothes from our neighbor. She LOVES her doll, but so far we've been lucky enough to keep her from the craziness of the store. Well, the catalog came in the mail today. It was addressed to her. She sat on the couch and paged through. Every few minutes I heard things like "Look mom- Saige can be a ballerina" or "Wow- I want to buy this for Saige." We talked about how those things cost money and she would need to save to buy them. She first tried to take all of daddy's change out of RC's change basket. Her first response was "well mom, I can just use your money. It's for Saige, not me, so I don't need to use my money. Isn't it nice of me to want to buy this for Saige?" Later, she decided that Saige needs this ice cream stand. "well, I can just have a lemonade stand to earn money. I can sell hot dogs and ice cream and lemonade and then I can buy this for Saige"...aaaaaahhhhhh! We're in trouble!
