Young Entrepreneurs

My parents' 4-year-old neighbor and his slightly older sister greeted John and me as we pulled up this evening.
The 4-year-old was wearing a plastic toy binocular around his neck, which he clearly wanted to talk to us about even though he is still a little difficult for our untrained ears to understand.
We did make out "for watching birds only" and "$5."
Then we confirmed what we suspected.
"You would like us to pay you $5 in exchange for looking through your binoculars?"
"Yeah."
"Um. No, thanks." 
He and his sister took the rejection well.
Then they geared up to make their pitch to the neighbor across the street as he pulled into his driveway.
