What are you saving for?

It was a very casual, lazy afternoon when my five year old daughter came out of her room dressed to impress! She was head to toe in sparkles from her yellow sparkle tutu, to her princess heels, and a glittery fairy wand in her hand. “Mommy!” she exclaimed from the living room to the kitchen where I emptying the dishwasher. “Let’s have a tea party!” Smiling from ear to ear, I granted her request and she ecstatically ran to her room to grab her “fine china” pink tea set.
