Lily: I really need some more money. I don’t have enough.
Me: OK, you can do some chores. The playroom needs cleaning, your shoes can be straightened up and Penelope needs to be fed.
Lily: Nah, I don’t want to do those kinds of chores. I could draw you a picture. You know how people pay artists for their art?
Me: Not quite what I was thinking, but ok… How about a picture of all of us? We don’t have many of those.
Lily: No. I want to draw a supermarket.
I paid her a nickle for it, admitting that it was a pretty darn good supermarket. I fear that I’ve set a very poor precedent, however. She just asked me how much she could get for drawing a whole city.
