Some parents can’t walk out of WalMart without buying their kids a trinket or the latest gizmo or gadget. Me? I’ll buy my children a few items… for birthdays, or Christmas, or Easter. Guess I’m not 1) a pushover, and 2) easily suckered into frivolously spending our hard-earned money. Plus, I’ll let you in on a little secret: Kids don’t need stuff to be happy!
What am I a sucker for? The occasional roadside turtle.
My 2yo and I spied this guy on the way home from our weekly drive to the farm for milk and eggs. Talk about your frugal fun! He was free. He was interesting to look at and learn about. He was entertaining. And when he was done with us? He climbed out of his box and walked away. No harm, no foul. A simple, free surprise for a warm summer day.
The little things are the Finer Things!
