So for Sam's birthday he got a card from his Aunt in Pennsylvania.
He has yet to open it...(after several.. you should open Aunties card) so just now, I opened it.
Inside was a check for 300 for college.
This is what his aunt has given him every year along with a little gift. This year she isnt coming to his family get together (as its a 3 hour drive) but I dont know if I should tell him that Aunt gave him $300.. if I should just say Aunt gave him money for college... and leave it at that.
Im afraid if I give him the check, he will THINK he can go and buy an X box or something stupid with that money...and I dont want to get into college/ savings/ etc discussion.
Is it bad just to say in passing " Auntie gave you money. Am gonna put it in your account...and aviod the total she gave..."
He has also recieved misc cash from other relatives totalling 125. so Im thinking if he wants something, he can spend that... (not enough for an x box...) can you tell I dont want an x box. LOL
