Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Birthday Scoot

When baby girl had her birthday. Her grandparents had sent her $25.00. They live in another state, so they can't make it to our home.

She enjoyed her birthday celebration

I wondered what she'd use her money for.

We went to the store and she browsed around and choose a scooter.

Of course there were all kinds of scooters at Target. She wanted the ones that did TV things. I reminded her that she only had so much money. So she settled on one that cost $25+ tax.
Of course I paid the tax :)

She still loves her scooter.

Of course her brother wants to share it.

The way he goes on about pink, I'm surprise he wants to ride the pink scooter :)

The rest of her money she still has in savings.

Gotta teach them how to handle money soon.

  1. That's kind of cute don't you think I bet it will get a lot of use too ;-)

    Have a scoottastic rest of week ;-)

    1. Oh it is getting lots of use!
      They will not let it rest :)
      Ahh the days of being children.

      Thank you Steve.

  2. Awww Happy Birthday to your little sweetie! A pink scooter oh yes pink is very girlie, but very fun. Bet big brother only rides it in the backyard or when no one is around. hehehe Those wheels look very small Callie. I hope they're sturdy and last a long time. Wouldn't want her heart to get broke. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your darling babies!

    1. Thank you Dolly.
      It seems to be holding up so far, but hey it's on the cheap end, but still dear to her as it's her money that was spent :)

      And yes big brother does ride it in public too :) He isn't scared or care :) Fun is fun right.

  3. I love that she found one with pink wheels!! A big happy birthday to her!!

    1. Thank you Rosey!
      She does love her wheels and all the pinkness :)

  4. Are they both really enjoying it? Broxton keeps saying he wants one, but I am not sure if he really would play with it all the time or not

    1. Yes. If they could ride it all the time, they would. Both of them. They seem to want to fight over who gets to use it.
      I wouldn't have chosen it for them, so I'm glad she chose it. I did ask her if she was very sure and she said yes.

      Now I see they love it, so yes it seems it's a good choice.

  5. Happy Birthday to your little girl! My kids love their scooters. Have a terrific day!

  6. Cute kids! I love that you paid the tax. When my kids were small, I wanted them to understand about money, but was always trying to help them stretch their birthday money gifts as much as possible (especially if a relative gave me money in advance and asked me to pick out a gift!)

    1. Thank you Susan.
      We do have to teach them as young as possible, especially in this world right.
