At just 5 years old, my kids often have more cash on them than me.
I needed to prepay the neighbor kid to take care of our cats and mail while we're gone this weekend...I didn't even have $10 on me.
I saw the little Hello Kitty wallet sitting there just brimming with ones...
ScaryMom "Um, L? Can I borrow some money?"
L, "For what?"
ScaryMom, "I have to pay the neighbor to take care of Fatcat and Franklin while we're gone."
L, after a long pause watching me sweat it out... "Yes. But don't forget to pay me back!"
(Just another reason I'm glad we decided to give them a small allowance.)
Anyone else had to break into their kid's piggy bank yet? Be honest...
