The children have job to help with the house and manage their things. They earn about $1 a week. Apparently I forgot to pay them since halloween. So they all have a lot of money now. The best thing is when they find some cool item they are interested in, and beg me to get it, I say "Hey, you're the ones with all the money!" For some strange reason they are not so keen on spending their money on these things. Our plan to raise a gaggle of misers is working excellently.
And yet they are so generous. LP bought an 8 pack of pez. She let 2 of her siblings fill their dispensers with a new pack of candy when she was getting her pack today. So kind!
