Caedmon's Big Purchase

Caedmon has been saving his money for months now and finally had a grand total of $20.80...just enough to buy that Pillow Pet he's had his heart set on. Today was the big day that I took him to the mall to let him pick one out. He chose a shark. Caedmon was absolutely thrilled and I couldn't have been happier for him! That took a lot of patience and diligence to earn all the money and wait so long to get what he really wanted. Delayed gratification, People! Teach 'em young!!! :-)

Caedmon's special pillow up to this point was the Cars pillow that Sammy is holding. We gave him that one a couple years ago. He knew that Sammy would be inheriting that pillow when he got his Pillow Pet, but he tried to pull a fast one on me. Caedmon said, "Mommy, Sammy can buy the Cars pillow from me for $3.00." Bahahaha! Um, will be giving that to him as a gift! That sounds mysteriously like something my brother would have said when he was Caedmon's age! Maybe Caedmon will grow up to have the business sense that his Uncle Teve has!
