I Like to put Money in my Bank!

April 26th, 2008 at 06:20 am

Yesterday my 5yo niece called me to tell me she had slipped getting up from the table, cracked the bottom of her chin on the table, split it open, and had to get stitches under her chin, so now she is going to have a scar under her chin just like her Aunt (me).

After telling me about how the stitches really didn't hurt because they were "butterfly stitches" and that she was very brave and did not cry so her mommy bought her a toy, we started talking about her new allowance. She became very animated and explained how when she gets her allowance ($3) she puts one dollar in the giving bank, one dollar in the college bank, and one dollar in the spending bank (which she saves up to buy something like a toy).

I asked her what her favorite thing was about getting an allowance. I completely expected her to say that it was when she got to go buy a new toy. But she said: "I Like to put Money in my Bank!" And of course I replied: "Me too, xxx! I like to put money in MY bank!"

Now we have 2 things in common.

    Very cute!

    My son is very excited about the money he has in the bank. BEcause he knows it is growing. He really hasn't a clue why, but he knows it is growing in there, and he gets very excited about it.

    Of course we make a big deal about saving around here so that is what he picks up on.

    Too bad for the boo boo though - ouch!

    How cute, it amazes me how they know so much at such a young age. My nephew received a dollar from the tooth fairy back in March and he has been holding onto it since (he's 5) my brother said to him the other day why don't we donate your dollar to the church fund, his reply 'dad you must be crazy I am saving my money"...lol
    Last year he saved all his dollars and coins and bought every one X-mas gifts

    This little gal is getting a very early start to doing what's necessary so she won't carry an unnecessary debt load.

    Speaking for myself, I know I can learn from those words. Smile
