Stephen has started getting an allowance.  We read a Love and Logic parenting book, Millionaire Babies or Bankrupt Brats, about how to use allowance to teach your children how to manage money.  One of the things they advise is having the child ask for his allowance every week instead of just handing it to him.  Because of this rule, Stephen has not gotten allowance for many, many weeks because he always forgets to ask on Saturday.  But now, he desperately wants a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy and decided to save up his allowance to buy it.  Suddenly, he has incentive to get money (before he just blew the cash on gum and candy).  Due to his forgetful nature, he now writes himself reminder notes about all kinds of things (example here), and this is the latest I found in his room:



(Translation for those of you not accustomed to reading phonetic Kindergarten/1st grade spelling: For Stephen.  Allowance day, to day.  Get money.  Go to Eric or Jenny.  Go to day.  You will get more money.  It will be good)

I guess he’s too sophisticated now to call us “Mom” and “Dad.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, here he comes!

    Haha that is hilarious! I guess it seems more like a business transaction to call you by your real names. 😛
