(after leaving our second stop)
Nico: Mommy, you wore me out.
Me: I wore you out? How?
N: By spending so much money.
Me: I'm hungry. Are you hungry?
Nico: I'm hungry.
Me: Where do you think we should eat?
Me: I don't know, buddy. We should probably go somewhere less expensive.
N: But I want to go to Panera.
Me: That's not really an option, buddy.
N, grimly: Well, it's my option.
(we ended up going to Panera)
Nico: What's this song called?
Me: Black Dog.
N: Is it about a black dog?
Me: No, I don't know why it's called Black Dog. I think it's about a lady.
N: Why is this lady singing about a black dog?
Me: It's not a lady singing, it's a guy. A man.
N: Why does he sound like a lady?
Nico: Look! Look at that blue truck!
Me: Yes, I see it.
N: Are we going to buy that?
Me: No, we are not buying that PowerWheels.
N: Why not?
Me: Because it's expensive and you don't need one.
Nico: That little boy next door, why does he have one? Where did he buy it?
Me: I'm pretty sure someone bought it for him.
Me: I guess he's just lucky.
N: But how are we going to get it home? Will it fit in your car?
Me: Will what fit in my car?
N: That blue truck right there.
