At the museum

I went to the museum with 2.5year-old Marie yesterday. After we had looked at exhibits for a few hours, she wanted to go home. As we passed the museums' gift shop, she wanted to go inside "just to look around." She went all over the shop exclaiming over everything, "this is sooo cute!" or "look how precious!" and other such statements. (She's so funny, when she's trying to act grown-up!) Some kids toward the front of the shop were picking out candy. She overheard their conversation, and said to me, "Some kids in this store are getting candy..." I said, "Really? Well, YOU'RE not one of them!" She turned around and (with her BIG brown eyes) asked, "COULD I be?!!!"
How do you turn that child down?
