Silent auction and Emily

Emily: “Nutcracker tickets…. We should get that”
Me (going for mom/math teacher of the year…): “there’s a $10 bid, how much should you bid?”
Emily: “$20”
Me: “ok”

From that point on, Emily kept going back to the table to check on her bid.

Emily: “Mom, it say $25”
Me: “How much should you bid?”
Emily: “$35”
Me (ok, she can add 10, that’s good but let’s make her add 5): “How about $30?”
Emily: “ok”

Emily: “Mom, it says $32, let’s put $50!”

My kid is a serious silent auction bidder!!!

Me: “Let’s try $35”

Emily: “Mom it says $40, let’s put $100!!!”
Me : “Let’s try $45!”

We got it at $45!!!

And I will continue to pay for private math lesson. :). I’m glad she wasn’t trying to bid lower so we are making progress.
