with her money. Tomorrow is lemonade day and dd7 will have her lemonade stand set up with some goodies and if course lemonade. The other day at Costco getting her supplies, a lady asked her if she was having a lemonade stand, we had lemonade and cups in our basket, and dd proudly said "yes ma'am". The lady goes on to ask her what she is going to do with her money. DD happily says she's going to buy her little brother some toy cars, and save the rest for Disney world. We are going in September, trip is paid for and each kid has their own set amount for spending money, to use as the wish. DD has set this as her goal to take to Disney world and use some for baseball stuff. We of course will give her the money we already have saved and the money she gets from lemonade day will go into her savings account. Well little lady proceeds to tell her she is selfish and that the money she makes NEEDS to and SHOULD be donated to a charity. Then goes on to tell her about all these different charities she should donate to. Um, NO lady, it's DD's money and she can do what she wants with it. I told her, thank you for the info but she will not be donating to charity, she will keep her money. As I'm walking away, she says, "this is why we have such ungrateful children these days". Yea, whatever crazy lady. Ok, vent over. On to baking cooking cookies for lemonade day.
Lil miss had a great day of selling lemonade!!! After 3 1/2 hours of business, she made about $220. Not to shabby! The top sellers, pickles and cookies and of course lemonade. She was so excited and ready to go out and but her little brother some new toys, we had to go right after we closed down her stand. She decided on stoping at Target and took her sweet time looking and deciding on the best toy cars/trucks for him. Once her decision was made, she was so proud to pay for them herself at the checkout. Little brother was so happy to have a few new toy cars and a dump truck. I will deposit the rest of her money into her savings account tomorrow.
