Today, I was trying to convince my three year old son Dante to come shopping with me.  My husband joined in the effort and said, “Why don’t we go to the Dollar Store (where everything costs $1 CAD) and see what treasures you might find there?”

“What treasure?” Dante asked.

“You know, treasures you may find at the store.” My husband repeated.

“Daddy, where are the Pirates?” Dante asked, surely, there cannot be treasure without some real pirates.

“Err…there are no pirates there Dante.” My husband insisted.

“Then I don’t want to go to the Dollar Store anymore.  I want to go play on my iPad.” Might as well do something that will get him some real pirate action…
