Sweet lunch date

Today, my sweet daughter took her brother and I out to lunch. Wow!

Yesterday, she decided that she wanted to go to Burger King for lunch. We did not have any more "eating out" money left, so I told her that should would have to pay for it if we went.

Today, I told her she would need $10...3 dollars for each person (not sure if its fair, but I told her she had to pay for us all if she really wanted to go) and then some for tax. So, we went upstairs and we counted out the money. I reminded her that she wouldn't be able to spend this money on ice cream which is something she had been saving for...but she decided it was worth it.

We drove to the restaurant, and we talked over the meals for each kid, and a burger and dr. pepper for mom.... My only sadness about this was that the kitchen and front counter were having such a terrible time, that we didn't get to count out the money again. Bill for lunch $9.97. SCORE!

She seemed very proud. I know I sure was. We enjoyed our food, and it was so much sweeter knowing that we were learning about life at the same time.
