Our rental lawn is gathering weeds. Because I don't own this place, sadly my investment in it is small. But still, I don't want it to look trashy so yesterday I did a little weeding. The kids came to help me, some pulling up more grass than weeds, but hey, whatever. It was a pleasant 15 minutes. Back inside awhile later for lunch my oldest asks me a question with happy anticipation on her face.
Her: Mom, can I have some money for weeding?
Me: Um, maybe.
Her: Okay. I want five dollars.
I'm afraid I laughed explaining that she would have to weed a lot more to merit five whole dollars. She was a little disappointed. Yes. If only getting money were so easy.
