Last weekend it was my oldest son’s (Ben) birthday and he had a friend sleep over. The next morning my youngest son informed me he had a project due the next day at school. So, we raced to Michael’s to buy some supplies. Once I had gotten done paying for the items, I turned around and noticed Ben’s friend buying some candy. Then I overhead Jeff make a comment to him, and I couldn’t believe my ears. In noticing that Nio had paid for the candy himself, Jeff said “Wow….you paid for that yourself? In my world everything is free.” I looked at Ben and asked him if I heard right. Surely my son did not just say that. But, yes, Ben rolled his eyes and confirmed that was exactly what he said.
…. first though…..I’d like to live in Jeff’s world.
But, in the meantime, guess it’s time for chores and an allowance.
