Sound Financial Planning

January 4, 2010

Daughter: What can you buy for $5?

Me: I don’t know, do you have $5?

Daughter: No, but I will when I win the Trix Yogurt prize under the lid.

Me: We don’t have Trix Yogurt.

Daughter: We could go buy some with the $5 I’m going to win.

## Before I was able to post this she asked me this.

Daughter: Mom, how many seconds has it been?

Me: Since what?

Daughter: I don’t know.

Me: 30

Daughter: I ate my cookie in 30 seconds, did I win anything?

Me: Like what?

Daughter: $5

    Is she going for the annoy mom until she gives it to me? Because, I’m thinking that might work here.

    Buggys: If I gave her $5 every time she asked me a question she would be rich beyond belief and I would be extremely broke. She’d have her college paid for in one evening.

    Jayne: Sorry it took me so long.

    Stephanie: It’s much funnier from your perspective.

    And people wonder why guys don’t think women are good with money.

    She seems very focused. While it may drive you nuts now, it will be a good quality when she is grown.

    BK: Nope

    Mooog: At least she was thinking about practical items to buy with her money. If she were a boy I’m sure she would have thought a good buy would be a flat screen tv.

    Anne: Yes she is focused and it does drive me nuts how driven she is when she wraps her brain on an idea however I agree with you it will serve her well in the future, or she will have a horrible gambling problem.

    This reminds me of a story a friend told me yesterday. He has a foot problem for which his doctor recommends he stick his foot in a pan of freezing cold water, add ICE and then let it sit in there for five whole minutes. While doing this, his daughter told him what a baby he was over the pain. He bet her ten dollars she couldn’t do it. She did. And she texted her friends the whole time about what a weenie her dad is.

    Your kid is brilliant.
