Saturday Afternoons #2

It's Saturday...which means I get to share another creation make with October Afternoon products...

Using Rocket Age Collection

I live in an area of affluence and it is so hard to not lose my financial compass sometimes. Seems like the kids here have lots of nice things and I want my kids to have those nice things too. It's a classic case of keepin' up with the Jone's. The other reason is that I grew up lower middle class. I didn't get very many things that weren't necessary. So in an effort to "do better" I have given my children many things I could have only dreamed about getting at their age. 

To keep them from getting spoiled, I try to teach my children to say "maybe next time", which is very hard especially when I look into their sad faces, but I am trying to get them to understand the bigger picture. There may be a day we might not have the money to buy them what we can now and I don't want to feel bad or embarrassed that I said no. In life you don't always get what you want. You know? 

So now when they ask me "Can I have this?" My answer is "Maybe next time". They think there might be a next time and I don't feel like I have to buy everything or guilty for not. 

PS. going to link this one to Annette Allen's blog, she is giving away a sweet prize for anyone that links up as a celebration of achieving some great blog milestones! YEAH Annette!

Thanks for sharing!

  5. Super cute baby card Wida! I love your new Saturday story time feature! It's good to teach your kids that they can't always have everything they want.

I'm saying no a lot more or I say maybe when it goes on sale.

  6. Love your hidden buttons on your sweet baby card!

    Again, you have the craziest knack for saying things that relate so well to me. My husband loves to buy everything he can for our two boys (sometimes I think for himself too) which causes a lot of tension between us because I was brought up differently, where waiting for things really made them special (if they ever came). Well today he went over the deep end and bought an xBox console and games to keep at Grandma's house for when we visit. I won't go into the details of our "conversation," but he's returning everything to the store tomorrow : )
