Today's "extra" was really fun. The boys and I went around the house and collected any and all loose change. (We really only had to look in a couple of jars and my diaper bag. This also prompted a spontaneous cleaning out of my diaper bag, which could be its own major accomplishment!) They lugged the bags of coins into the Food Lion and had great fun dumping them into the CoinStar machine. Then they each got a dollar and could pick out a treat. Mom got the other 47 dollars; isn't that fair?
|With the goods. They're still young enough that I can totally guide their "choice" of what to get!|
|And this is what dinner looks like when dad's out of town. Lovely, isn't it?|
