Conversation with an 8-year-old that's way too smart

Reagan: Mommy, can I watch a show after lunch?

Me: Yes, which show are you going to watch?

R: Can I watch Extreme Couponing?

Me: Isn't there a show on that's more...appropriate for your age?

R: There's Phineas and Ferb but I've already seen it and I'm not in the mood for animation.  There's Fresh Beat Band, but I think that's more for 7 years olds and younger.

Me: I'm just not a big fan of Extreme Couponing.

R: If I tell you that I know people are buying in excess and it's not really saving money if you're buying things you don't need, and that they aren't really buying healthy things...then can I watch it?

Me: Yes.


  1. HA! I actually enjoy the show, but I've had to have the conversation with Sierra about why it isn't realistic {you know, kind of like most "reality" television}. It has prompted me to be better at using coupons, but I've only ever saved 36%. I refuse to drive to 5 different stores 6 different days of the week. And I also never buy something I know we can't use.

  2. What a smarty! I haven't seen that show but have heard of it and agree completely with Reagan! :)

  3. Oh my gosh! That is so funny! She is 7 going on 27!

  4. This might be my favorite post ever. :) LOVE it. Still giggling about it.
