"All By Myself!"


We started a reward jar for Whitney a while back. Every time she does something to help out or does something remarkably nice, we put a coin in her jar. The agreement was that she could use her money that she earned for anything she wants! She'd been wanting a pet fish for a while and would make us go look at them every time we went to Wal-Mart. She decided that she wanted to save up her money go get a fish! After about two months of saving up we took her and her jar to Wal-Mart and got to pick out a fish, a fish bowl, food, a little fishbowl plant and some pretty rocks. She was so proud of herself when she handed the cashier her money and the cashier handed her back the receipt! I'm glad she learned that good old lesson about working for things and not always getting everything you want when you want it. Hopefully this is something she'll always remember! And, I'm happy to say that our new pet "Coral" is still alive and well and Whitney has been very good at remembering to feed her. Now, let's just hope she doesn't decide she wants to save up for a puppy....

Whitney's new pet, Coral.

How fun and a great idea! Love the fish! Whitney is growing up so fast, I can't believe how big and grown up she is now.
