Conclusion

I can only conclude Rebecca drives a very cheap car and spends very little on food. She steals all her husbands money, never saves a penny and buys her kids lots and lots of sweeties (and muslin cloths.)  One kid gets pocket money and the other one, bless her, gets zilch. (or at least that’s their story 😉 )

Thank you lovely ladies and I do hope you grow up to be a twinkle sticker and Queen Elsa, top job ideas!

    This is very cute! It is so important to install lessons in money saving and the cost of living in our children but they haven’t quite got the hang of it yet:-)

    I love this. I might ask my 3 year old the same questions. I’m sure he thinks money only buys kinder suprise eggs!

    That made me smile a big smile! To be honest, at 37, my responses only marginally differ ;P Children are so cheeky and it’s lovely to see some stage where money means absolutely nothing.. wonderful to think that somewhere, sometime, money is totally meaningless! Such a whacky, ‘alternate’ post, Becky 🙂 Made me chuckle, I’m going to try asking my girls when they’re back…bet it’ll all begin or end with lego! :)xx
