What’s In Your Swear Jar?
Some of the hardest questions our kid asked us as soon as he started talking was, “Why do we have to leave our home everyday? Why can’t we stay here?”
Well son, we have to go to work.
“But why can’t you work here?”
I’m sorry, but we don’t make any money working at home. We have to go to our workplaces. If we don’t work, we can’t afford to live here.
“Can you quit your jobs and we move in with grandma and grandpa?”
Well son. As much as grandma and grandpa love us, I think they just like us visiting and can’t support all of us living there. And if we don’t work, we can’t pay our bills. Then we will go to jail. But if we work, save enough money and pay all our bills, then we can quit our jobs and stay home forever!

I know. Teaching a toddler the value of work, money and punishments are interesting subjects.
How do we accomplish this?
The swear jar fund!
It’s not the exact name for it (we actually call it a piggy bank) but when the spouse and I contribute to it, it usually makes us want to drop a 4 letter word or two.
