Saving Up

River really wanted an LOL doll.  These are not my favorite toys. Still, I believe in setting limits about what is allowed in our family while still being flexible and not denying kids ALL of the pop culture type things they crave. She has been saving diligently for maybe a month and a half and has saved up $5. There were many things she wanted along the way, but each time I reminded her about what she was saving up for and she decided it was worth foregoing whatever thing was tempting her for the ultimate reward of an LOL doll. I am proud of her. Saving and thoughtfully choosing what  we want to spend our money on are important skills that most human beings should constantly work on honing. LOL doll here we come.
