The boys want to buy a certain toy and are planning a zillion different ways to make money. One is to buy and sell sweets.
Okay great. Where will they get the original lay-out of capital from? Mom of course. They will work in the house to get enough to make their first purchases.
Good. No problem. Then comes the:
“If I make up my bed how much do I get?” – “Nothing. You HAVE to do that”
“If I pick up the clothes do I get paid?” – “No. You HAVE to do that”
“Can I wash the floor, walls, bath, dog, feet, TV, carpets, desk, chairs, Zander (trust me the list was endless)?” – YES!!! Just go!
“Okay, what can we do now?” “Now?” “And now?” “How much do we get if we do that?” “How much do we get for this?”
Never ending. What? How much? More?
I walk into the kitchen and they are washing my kitchen floor with my dishcloth!!!!
Oh word. Would it be wrong if I payed them to do nothing!?
