The reason the kids don't get to carry cash...much

February 7th, 2008 at 08:37 am

Last night as usual we loaded up the wallets and purse with a dollar for the basket at church. (well slightly unusual being Wednesday)

Anyway, As I picked up all the coats, papers, and such, I also saw my daughters purse and grabbed it, made a check to see that everything was clean for the seats to be stacked and headed over to pick up my youngest from the nursery...I was in a hurry, but I am still pretty sure I cleared the seats.

Today..no wallet. The kid has been 'hoarding' a dollar, one of the last from his Christmas money. For several weeks now (and several trips to the store) and in the silly absentmindedness of a kid he lost it. He wanted to be a 'big boy' and be trusted to keep track of his own money...well we let him try it.

I am not replacing the wallet or the dollar, And I hope he is a bit more careful next time...JC btw asked for her purse when she got in the car..still a bit late, but GMC didn't even notice the missing wallet himself!

    My kids are very careless with their wallets/purses also. I don't know how many times I've found wallets when I've taken the clothes out of the washer. And my 19 year-old daughter thinks nothing of leaving her purse in an unlocked car. Granted, we're in a rural area, but still!!!

    It is so hard to teach that lesson. My DS2 had a similiar experience, Someone gave him a dollar and he folded it into his pocket but when we got to the store it wasn't there. He was really upset but we didn't replace it either, lessons are hard but more effective that way.
