My Grandpa gave each of my daughters $100 again. This happens a couple times a year for random reasons. Since my girls have plenty of "Stuff", I usually use the money for something fun like staying over night at an indoor water park.
I told Mr. R this morning that I am just going to save the money for our cruise in February for the girls. Big R over heard me and said "Hey! That's my money!" Ummm. Right. I'm not giving a 7 year old $100 to decide what to spend it on.
So I explained to her that there are going to be lots of things on the cruise that she is going to want to do that cost extra, like playing games in the arcade, having a character breakfast with Dora and some other characters, or buying souvenirs. The money is still hers to use but it will go toward her cruise spending.
She didn't seem too happy about that but accepted it.
