The Parenting Files: When the student surpasses the teacher

Today the kids and I had a big grocery shopping trip with coupons today. I had a long list to knock out and Big Girl was a willing helper until her little legs started to get tired. She asked me what was taking so long this time. I told her that I was trying to save our family money and using coupons took more time.

She pointed to the full cart and said in an annoyed and tired voice, "How are you going to save money if you keep putting stuff in the cart?"

great wisdom your big girl has!

when my kids were little, they thought everybody used coupons and that a coupon was required for every purchase.

hope you save lots of money!
