Money

My kids seem focused on earning money in the last 2 days. Cyr has gotten up and gone to work with Dad. Emma, Ruthie, and Ella have volunteered to clean entire rooms only asking for $.50 each for the gumball machines at Kroger. I am really getting my money's worth out of them.

Just now I saw Michael laying on the living room floor with Ava pounding on his back, she called it a massage. I asked her why she was doing this and she practically squealed she was getting money for it. I asked how and Michael turned over to find out b/c he was surprised by her response. She kinda stumbled not having thought this plan through. Michael told her he didn't have any money and she replied, "You can just give me the money when you lose a tooth." He seemed ok with that and rolled back over for her to continue. I guess a deal has been struck and she is now taking his intact teeth as collateral. They are so funny sometimes.

LOL! I hope you don't find her pounding on his face next time, trying to knock out that tooth!

Your kids are a hoot!

I used to pay my little sister for massages all the time...except she was a freaking loan shark...she'd charge me interest (have I mentioned I'm older by almost 9 years?)when I couldn't pay her right away!
