So, I scrapbooked with some friends Friday night until 2 am and this is "1"of my "2" lo's!! I wanted to share this one so my sister could see. I am in love with this paper! Just love the colors and thought went well with the picture.
AND, this is Dawson playing with his new toy he bought with his allowance money. We started him on a "money manage" system using 3 jars. One being, spend, save, and charity. Each week we give him the amount of his age and split it into the 3 jars. So, we let him go to Target the other night and spend his money on a toy he had been wanting for a long time. He actually goes up to the regiter and pays for it himself....it's all part of the process. He knows that once the money is gone it's gone. That's how they start to learn to manage it. One of the things that Eddie and I decided is that he does not get money for doing everyday chores...they are just expected of him. So, each Sat. we give him the money for him to divide between his jars.
Anyways, I just wanted to share that b/c I am excited to see the outcome. I think it is very important to teach how to manage and be responsible with money at an early age.
