He wasn't being particularly patient and really wanted me to play with him, but I kept on telling him that Mommy couldn't play right now because I had some work I had to get done so he would have to play on his own for now.
He asked a few more times over the period of time I was on my computer, until all of the sudden I heard him say, "I will pay you a dollar if you play with me!"
To which he proceeded to walk up to me and hand me one of his over-sized fake playbills from his math shelf (which was actually a ten, not a one).
Which, of course, made me feel really bad about not being able to play with him - my preschooler is offering to pay me to play with him. It made me laugh though, and it was yet another one of those humorous, unexpected life with a preschooler moments that I hold so dear.
