Worth it.

Our second, bless his heart, had not yet spent any of his birthday money. Never mind that his birthday was in late August. I suppose with the move, that tightly tucked away envelope had been forgotten. I knew about it, and often wondered when he would remember he had it. You see this guy is more of a saver than a spender. Where others in the family would let it burn a smoking hole in their pocket; he is content to wait until something strikes his fancy.

Well, yesterday it did.

Like lightening!

Is it wrong for a mom to allow her kid to spend a whole twenty bucks of his birthday money on 2lbs of all things gummy?

Doesn't matter, because the pure joy he had from choosing what he wanted was like that credit card commercial....priceless!

  1. haha, remind me to save my birthday money until I find a shop like this :)

    no, letting your son spend twenty bucks on gummy stuff was definitely not wrong. He looks delighted.

    I have just started a new blog called Pet Snaps (

    If you would like to send pics of your pets, I'll upload them to the site!

    Love pets, love Pet Snaps xx
