However, she really did "earn" that Jessie doll. She cleaned and organized the house like I had never seen her do it before. She did it like "I" would do it. Organized the closets, did the dishes, laundry, vacuumed, washed people's cars. They both really got into it (Sam the window washer) and had the money well before I could even pay up.This led to Kailyn asking Seth when he got paid a few times because she knew that was when SHE would get paid. Pay Day finally came and we went off to the store to spend their earnings. This is the day that what Kailyn wanted changed. She no longer wanted that coveted Jessie doll. She wanted to get something else, something more mature. She ended up with this:
A sequin bag/purse, a butterfly ring, doubled layer scarf, necklace, lip gloss and hair products that the TV claims will make her hair full and shiny. What happened to my little girl? She wanted nothing to do with all the toys in those toy aisles. It was her money she earned so she is allowed to do what she pleases with it.(within reason) She had a BLAST!!(We were in the store 3 hours!!) Sam, on the other hand, ended up with just what he set out to earn and was quite happy too.
