Mama, can I buy this?
I'm trying to get the kids to understand that money doens't grow on trees. That means that we can't just buy everything they see. One of the best ways for me to get the message acrsoss is to have the kids spend their Papa Dollars, money their grand dad gives them, for the things they want.
ON this day Kennedy wanted _____. She asked if I'd get it. I told her that since she left her money at home, I'll get it BUT she'd have to pay me back once we got home.
