The boy needed new pants. We went to Winners. They didn't have any in his size but there was a big, yellow toy truck by the kids clothes. He wanted the yellow truck. We went to Old Navy and got two pairs of pants but he still wants the yellow truck. Christian's birthday and Christmas being so close together has got him thinking that he gets new toys all the time.
It is a bit early, but I decided to try and teach the boy about allowance and saving money to buy whatever he wants. This could be the yellow truck if he still wants it after he has saved his money. So, he helped me clean the floors on Sunday. (Obviously, this isn't really helping me.) He earned one dollar and he put it in his piggy bank.
