Working Hard

The kids have depleted their stash of cash and have been trying to come up with a few ways to build it back up. They made up a bunch of braided dog toys in hopes to sell them this holiday season. So for all you LOCALS with dogs.... the kids are selling braided fleece dog toys for $2.00 each. Call or send us a message and they will even deliver. Yes, Flower Girl is standing on my kitchen table. My mother would flip out if she saw her now. Ha, we like to break the rules ;)

We just don't hand the kids cash. They get allowance only if they earn it and that does not include the basics such as picking up after themselves and cleaning their rooms weekly. That is just expected! Maine Man & I both have good work ethic and we feel that it is important trait to pass on to our children. To make money you must first earn it!
Next week I'll be posting on their next adventure to make a little cash this holiday season. This one is going to take a little help from MM & I but I think it will be a fun adventure.
Stay tuned.....

What a great idea! If you were local, I'd buy one of those doggie braids. My dog loves that size of toy! And it would help out the cause. Good luck to you. I think it is great what you are teaching them with responsibility and money too. Have a great Thanksgiving.

This is a great idea! How did they ever come up with it.

I'm glad that you and MM have the same concept as I do. When we were little, we were expected to help out around the house, mainly doing the dishes and we all took turns, and folding our laundry. Nowadays, kids "expect" to get paid to do that stuff.
Great idea they have!

Thanks Sonya & YD!
Sherri we made them last year for Christmas gifts for our friends and families that have dogs.
