This week Sophie lost a tooth. It was a baby molar. It also came out with a cavity.
"Mom? How much would it cost to get a cavity filled at the dentist? "
"I don't know, maybe $100 or more. Why? "
"Well....don't' you think that you should at least pay me half of that for saving you all that money? "
"Well, if I hadn't worked hard to make the tooth loose, and hadn't worked hard to pull it, then you would have had to pay the dentist to put a filling in it. Therefore I SAVED you money. I think you should share that savings with me. Don't you?"
She comes from a line of lawyers, can you tell?
She settled for a 50 cent bonus.
Wait a minute....did I just PAY her for a cavity??
