Since #3 launched his now-somewhat-famous-
because-I-won’t-stop-talking-about-it lemonade stands earlier this summer, people have constantly been asking me what he spends his cash on.
I get that, it’s not every day you see a 4 year old with a wallet so thik with $1 bills it won’t even close. People are curious about
if he moonlights at a strip club what he does with it all.
Honestly, like every successful entrepreneur on the planet, he saves most of it, and gives some of it away.
With his first few dollars he earned he did go out and buy himself a small, plastic ball for the pool and a boat from the $1 bin at Target.
Then we had “the tree incident”* and it turned him into the brown-skinned, Western Maryland version of the Lorax. Being so traumatized by the entire thing, he vowed to save up enough cash to replace at least one of the trees that was removed unexpectedly.
I sorta fibbed about how much one would need to actually purchase a tree, so he thinks he has at least 10 times the amount required. He’s now planning to put in a whole garden on the side of our house this spring. With a pond. Filled with coy and bullfrogs.
Don’t worry, I fully intend to front him the cash he needs to make the yard more beautiful when the time comes.
But, aside from his two pool toys, his tree savings, and his charitable giving (he considers buying his brother’s ice cream charity), #3 spends his bank on one thing: Sweet. Bow. Ties…
He went on the Buttered Toast shop site and picked his latest one out all by himself. Or as he likes to say, he “hooked it up online”. You know, cause that how we do…
Just shop for fancy duds in our spare time and then rock them like a gangsta…
Want to snag something fancy for your little man’s neck?!
Check out our handmade-bow-tie-making homey at Buttered Toast. With all of her fun designs, she rocks kids’ necks. Hard…
Because #3 believes that every good businessman needs to look money if he’s gonna make money, we’re giving one super McCool bow tie away to one super McLucky reader (just leave a comment on this post by Friday saying you want to be entered; that’s it!). What? He’s looking into become a venture capitalist too (and, apparently a doctor who moonlights as a farmer and a volunteer fire fighter).
Now, comment on this post
because you love me so you can win the tie.
Then check out last week’s favorite linkers. Since everyone seems to have back-to-school on the brain, we decided to feature some of our favorite links on the subject this week!
- See how back-to-school looks for a mama sending her twin Dudes to kindergarten for the first day at Because I’m the Mommy.
- Check out Desert Chica Ramblings as she sends her oldest to kindergarten for the first time!
- See the morning struggles of getting kids off to school at Stacey’s Mothering Moments.
- And, an adios summer poem with pictures of a kid’s first golf tournament at Ordinary Miracles & The Crazy 9 should help you reminisce a bit too.
When you’re done checking out their awesome, go ahead and see what my WW co-host, Seven Clown Circus, is up to this week!

And, I already know I’m bossy. So there.
