Last week, he came up to me and said "Mom, I need a job. I need to make money."
I said "oh really, what do you need money for?"
So he whips out his Thomas the Train catalogue and shows me the things he needs money to buy.
I give him three options of things he could do to make money.
He could clean the whole toy room himself, vaccuum out the van (with our little hand vac) or he could tidy up the living room.
"No mom, how about I clean up this puzzle and you can pay me?"
"Um, you took the puzzle out and that isn't enough work to make money from."
"But all those jobs will take too long."
So he took his catalogue back upstairs to decide what he is going to buy when he gets his money.
Comes back down a couple hours later and tells me the same thing again.
Still disagrees with my jobs.
Goes back upstairs.
Comes back down and we finally agree on him cleaning out the fridge.
He did it (with help from mom) and so he made some money.
Although it wasn't NEAR enough to buy some expensive Thomas toys!!
This little girl has recently decided that dressing up is the best thing. A daily thing.
Almost every day she is wearing some kind of costume part.
This day she wore this outfit to the store.
Yesterday she wore a crown to church.
