After reading up on how exactly I wanted to structure the allowance system I decided to do the 2-part system recommended by many financial experts. Each child will have general "citizens of the household" tasks plus additional jobs where they can earn money. Dave Ramsey is all the rage right now and honestly, when it comes to allowance (he calls it commission), I like his concept. We will also refer to it as commission for the future.
The Keenz stroller (kind of a wagon) is a unique option for transporting little ones around the mall, zoo, neighborhood, ball field, beach... really you name it. I needed another stroller like I needed a hole in the head (it's a saying... don't take it too seriously.) Any-who, I had a real sh** day the end of last week.

Is it Monday? Yesterday, was one of those days that you wake up and wish you could start over. It was a Tuesday, not a Monday but boy did it go like a Monday. We have had our fair share of issues with the Airstream lately. If you don't know we have been living in our 30 foot Flying Cloud bunk for 1.5yrs now.
