This One Doesn't Cut Me Any Slack

This afternoon after we dropped Bear off at school, Miss as usual wanted to know where we were going. I told her that we were going to do our usual Trader Joe's run and then head home. She insisted that I take her to Rubio's for lunch, to which I responded that I just didn't have the cash for that today. While she accepted this as a reasonable excuse, Miss demanded to know exactly how many "cents" Rubio's costs. I kind of brushed her off absent-mindedly and gave her a vague "I'm not sure" response (I mean, she's three. I kind of didn't expect her to have any real concept of money, so I guess I was perhaps a little dismissive). Well, apparently Miss did not appreciate this because she then informed me, "YOU'RE the one that takes me to Rubio's, YOU should know how many cents it costs!" While I may find it frustrating at times, I'm glad my daughter doesn't take crap from anyone - even if sometime's that's me.
