Money Makes the Merry-Go-Round

I never want my kids to believe that money is the only result of success, however I do want them to understand the importance of being financially responsible at an early age, so I've decided to get them these new piggy banks:

They have 4 different options for kids to choose for their money. I think this shows them that they shouldn't always SPEND every penny they get, and it gives them the control to choose where they want to apply it. Now my only dilemma is explaining investment to a three year old. I'll come up with it.... Surely.

I changed my settings...

So you can leave comments now :o). Sorry!

It's Official...

Carl's gone. The floors are swept and mopped. The bathrooms are clean. The laundry is done. My paperwork is all caught up on. The bills and miscellaneous papers are filed. The grocery shopping is done. Riley's homework is done. My furniture is dusted and polished... This is by no means my way of saying that Carl doesn't clean. He probably cleans more than me. But when he's gone, I have a tendency to get everything done, because I have nothing better to do. Is it possible to lose the will to procrastinate? Oh, and dinner's ready. The biggest clue that Carl is gone: it's hamburger helper. Beef pasta anyone?

I could only aspire to be loved this much...

We're Making Plans!

Here you'll find the everyday musings of life, as I see them, which is probably not the same as you see them... Mother, baker, student, wife and woman, sometimes simultaneously, sometimes in conflict. Enjoy!
