Just Good Business

A few weeks ago, Elena owed Isaac $5. She got two $5 Target gift cards from the Orthodontist for being such a stellar patient. She gave one of them to Isaac. Debt settled.
Today, Maya earned $2 for cleaning the master suite. Isaac, ever the business man, saw his chance at wealth and prosperity. He traded Maya the $5 gift card for the $2 cash.
Genius!

Seems like Maya got the better deal. Last time I checked $5 was more than $2. ;-)

HEY -- I want to go to YOUR dentist. I'd be good every time. LOL Plus -- I have lots of kids... we could go out for lunch afterwards, if they were all good. Ü

Sounds like a math lesson in the making:
"You had $5, now you have $2. Which is more? How much money did you give away?"

On second thought, don't tell him. It might cause some strife.

Sounds like good ol' Liberian math to me!!!

Our son never ceases to amaze me with his 'creative' math!!

Now we just need to get him to use his 'creativity' with his writing!!

Delighting in Him

I love it! That makes me laugh. Apparently he's not a Target shopper. Too cute!
