Life is Like a Hurricane

In an effort to establish a sense of financial responsibility at an early age, I have begun to speak to Lil Sippy Cup about money.  My lessons are simple and direct, often involving dollar bills and a pile of coins that would make Scrooge McDuck proud.  Lil Sippy Cup enjoys these lessons immensely, most especially when he is able to put the money into his own piggy bank.

Nevertheless, he seems to have missed a key point in the concept of earned income.

Me: "Okay, so we're good?"

Lil Sippy Cup: "Yes."

Me: "Okay. So you understand why mommy goes to work?"

Lil Sippy Cup: "Yes."

Me: "Good."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Mommy has to go to work to buy money."

Me: "Uhm, wait..."

Lil Sippy Cup: "And then she gets me surprises!"
