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.
