My daughter is starting to learn about numbers and money. She understands the concept of purchasing items and that you need money to do so.
DD earned 5$ to spend where she wanted on what she wanted when we went for errands today. Zellers had nothing within her price range or interest. The dollar store was her last hope after looking for that perfect something elsewhere. She walked the toy isle about six times before quickly deciding on this pink rubber balloon toy that looked like a blow fish. After getting what I needed we headed to the cash. I noticed the blowfish was dirty it looked like it was previously on the floor.
I asked dd if she would rather some Halloween candy than another toy to just end up in the toybox. With a big smile she agreed.
After that dh & I wanted a coffee so we stopped at Tim hortons. Dd insisted she go in and buy some donuts for her and her brother so a pack of 20 timbits she bought.
I was impressed with her donut idea, sharing with her brother too was sweet. Showing the “big girl” despite the little girl drama this week. Always mommys girl 🙂
