as we prepared to depart the hotel wednesday afternoon, i brought henro to the gift shop to pick out a souvenir (aka: behavior bribe for the journey home). the process for choosing his treasure took way too long & entirely too much negotiating, but we eventually agreed upon a "prize" and headed to the checkout counter.
while paying for the newest addition to our collection of magnetic character scene sets with gazillions of pieces, the nice lady behind the register tried making conversation with the little traveller...
what's your name? "henry"
how old are you? "four"
when are you gonna turn 5? "after four"
