The value of money…

Monday, January 21st, 2008

Princess T is 6 years old. She receives a token for allowance each month as I feel that she is way too young to receive too much at this stage. On Saturday we were in the mall and she really wanted a “build a bear”. Hubby and I said no, its way too expensive. We then went into the store and found  out that the cheapest bear is $12.00. We told her that if she wants one she can buy it with her own money. So she came home and counted out all her quarters until she made up $12.00. The next day we took her back to the store and she brought along her quarters in a little bag. She chose a bear worth $12.00 and named him cuddly, she did not have enough money to buy him clothes but went up to the counter with her little bag of quarters and paid and bought it all by herself. We are so proud of her.
