Poor Little Pony
Me: That's not happening. (I believe in letting them down easily.) When you are old enough to own your own place, then you can get one. Not before.
Mim: No. I want one now, not when I'm grown.
Me: (raised eyebrow) Oh really.
Mim: Yes, because when I'm older I won't want to do this. I want to get a pony and spray paint it to look like Twilight Sparkle. (pictured above)
I argued that the fact that she won't want to do it when she's older and wiser should give her pause, but her only response was
"Do you want to paint a pony?"
"There. That's why I should do it now."
I don't think she gets it....or maybe I don't.
