Sure, growing up too soon happens to plenty of kids these days. But when our guest blogger's 10-year-old started asking about culinary school and car shopping online? Whoa, kid. Whoa.
Earlier this week, Grande asked for a Facebook account. No way. (Personally? I think the “recommended age” of 13 is even too young!) He’s also been asking me about culinary schools (he wants to be a baker, like the Cake Boss) and has been car shopping online. He’s 10.
Grande: Mom. There’s this car and it’s only *$20,000. Since it’s not that expensive, I’ll get that one when I can drive.
Me: Ha! Start saving now, Bud. Also, give it six to seven years. It’ll come down in price.
Grande: Oh, like it’ll go on sale?
Me: More like it will be used and it won’t be new, so it will cost less.
Grande: Oh, I do NOT want a used car!
