The Economic Plan

I found this note on our family dry erase board: "No chores for 3 years, but still all your allowance will be $50 a day." -Mom


Apparently, I've been the victim of forgery.

My daughter's economic plan is delusional.

But sadly, if you watch the news, it is familiar.

At least the delusional part.

We can dream can't we?!
I liked her plan sounded plush.
Anyhow come experience some "faith stuff" in my house. :)

Auds at barking mad said...

Amen!

Yet another reason I'm glad we got rid of cable so that I don't have to listen to the drivel they're calling NEWS!

Tammy said...

Heck, I'm packing our bags and moving to your house....I'd be willing to do chores for $50/day. I don't get paid anything for my chores!

Bubba's Sis said...

Can I come live at your house?

Monica said...

She should go into politics. She'd fit right in with that plan! You get paid an extravagant amount for doing absolutely nothing!

Nancy M. said...

That would be my son's dream too! Very funny!

Isn't that the truth!

milissa said...

Kids are amazing little negotiators. I always joke that I'd be better at my job (sales) if I could remember exactly how to put into place the motto every kid lives by...you know...

You don't ask, you don't get. And persistence pays off. Oh and ask for something ridiculous...because even if you don't get that, if you get a fraction of it, it's still a pretty good deal! :)

I don't know if I'd call her a little politician so much as a little sales person.

marky said...

Sounds to me like she is the CEO of a major financial institute, and is probably planning a pretty lavish weekend!
LOL.. love that girls creativity

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

Given the options, I may vote for your daughter! What's the rest of her platform?

Patois said...

Could you come bail me out, too?

Wifeof1Momof4 said...

You have the early makin's of a true democrat there. Who has she been listening to lately???? humm
I would like to be a fly on your wall......

Luke said...

Well, at least that plan will amount to less than $55,000 per child... which is a tad less than $700 billion.

Aspiemom said...

She has a good sense a humor - and a career in politics ahead!

Faithful said...

You've been tagged. Chuck out my blog for the rules.

LOL. My daughter loves her plan and wants to implement it here. LOL. I said no way. This is not a democracy> Hee hee

Genny said...

So funny! I love this!

Looking forward to writing my One Day to Give post next week...

Valarie said...

Hmmmm looks like she has a future ahead of her. Maybe a CEO of a company that is getting bailed out. Yep sounds like she wants a Golden Parachute.

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

Too cute... wall street in her future?

My kids would love to be on the same plan!!

Michelle M. said...

I love the way she spelled "allalance". A dead giveaway that "Mom" did not write that :)

D... said...

LOL! You have to give her props for trying. Clever, clever girl! And since "you" are being so generous, I'll ask for a bail out too. ;)

Bonnie said...

LOL.

I have an award for you over at my blog.

CanCan said...

So...this means the allowance is CURRENTLY $50 a day as well?

Awesome. When I was 8 I got $3 a week!

gina said...
