And, the kids love thrift stores because we inevitably tell them that they can pick out one toy. Since the toys are super cheap, it's not hard to be generous and they, of course, love picking out a toy.
So, the other day, we were at one of our favorites and, just for fun, I tried on a pair of fake glasses. They were bright colored, striped, and all around gawdy. William took one look at me and with sincere efforts at complimenting me, he said, "They look great, Mom! They make you look smarter than you actually are!"
He's very lucky that he still got a toy... ;)
