Miss J had 11 lei she carried around for a while in her handmade green leather wallet. On Monday she couldn’t buy anything from the three stores she visited with daddy. Not enough money? – you just don’t buy anything.
Today she bought a candy from the grocery store and pants from a children’s store. All by herself. The cashiers were all smiles and kindness. She was all serious and business.
Kids handling their own money in the age of credit cards is educational and fun. Also, the delayed gratification is beautiful to witness.
