Ezra taught last night's Family Home Evening lesson on money management. He set up a mini-store to show the girls different options for spending their pretend money and to explain the virture of saving up versus spending it on something short-lived (like the infamous Cotton Candy Blunder of '12). He then asked each of us personalized questions like, "Dad, if you lose your job, should you get the first one you can find, or wait for one that you're better at or with a better price?"
I suggested he teach it after listening to him show me his business plan for next summer's lemonade stand for the 500th time. He's already made up posters and has a list of items needed (with accompanying picture) labeled S1, S2... for Step 1, Step 2... It's friggin' adorable, but still, one does get tired of hearing about it.
His new favorite movie is Piggy Banks to Money Markets from the library. It's kind of like Dave Ramsey for kids. He informed me he'd love a copy of his very own next Christmas.
He's currently walking around singing the song (from the aforementioned movie), Money Doesn't Grow on Trees.
Sometimes he's so much like his dad, it kills me.
Oh, my heck, I love this kid.
