Planning ahead

September 28th, 2007 § 0

So we’re out for dinner with Grandpa B, who’s visiting, and after a detailed perusal of the menu, Alli whips a small wad of cash from her pocket, counts out $2, puts the rest back, and slyly asks, “Mommy, can I order the sundae?” Sure enough, there’s a kid’s sundae on the menu for $1.89. Nothing like thinking ahead and raiding your piggy bank to satiate a sweet tooth.

Needless to say, my kid got to order dessert. Even better, a few bats of her eyelashes got the $2 covered by Grandpa.

People scare me

Dirty jobs

September 2nd, 2007 § 0

We’ve been testing a chore and allowance plan with Alli. Mind you, this is a child that is a walking tornado and needs a LOT of not so gentle encouragement to simply clear a walking path through her stuff.

And yet, while “getting” to scoop the cat litter today, pretty much one of the ickiest jobs in a house with 3 male cats, Alli professes:

“You know, I think this job is so fun that I shouldn’t even get a quarter for doing it.”

Where am I?
