Out of the blue Addison wants to set up a lemonade stand (this request happens frequently). Now, I don’t want to squash my little entrepreneurs hopes and dreams but sitting out in 102 degree heat waiting for a car to drive by (we don’t get a lot of traffic) is not my idea of a good time. I’ve managed to put him off…for now.
The following conversation took place that brought up the idea of lemonade stands in the first place.
Addison: Mommy, you should never talk to strangers. Right?
Me: Yes, absolutely never talk to strangers.
Addison: Well, what about when a stranger comes to my lemonade stand?
Me: Ummmmm. I guess it’s ok if you’re with a grown up. But you should still never talk to strangers. You wanna a snack?
