Newest Member of the Family
Feeding the dog, folding towels, dusting, emptying the dishwasher, and reading books all earned her stickers on the chore chart. Once the stickers overflowed the chart, payday came....25 cents per sticker. Go ahead and do the math....that's 400 stickers to get to $100! With a little help from the coins she found on sidewalks or under Dad's recliner, she did it. Off we went, for a get-away-trip to Chicago. Someone was proud as punch.
Could I be more proud of this seven year old for her goal setting determination and hard work? No way. Not one more ounce. For there was a key component to her saving $100. Every payday, every money earned or found, there are rules. This is her bank...
Seven years old, and habits she will forever carry with her. so so so SO proud of her and her accomplishment.
