Oink Oink, Baby
My kids learned a lot of things early. Mostly how to pick their nose and smear their applesauce on the walls. But still, it was pretty early on.
You think your parents were jerks for making you put 10% of every dollar you earned into savings now? Because if they hadn't, you probably would have just blown all your allowance and birthday money on things like Fun Dip and Silly Putty. And you'd be here, with all these great kid things to buy, without a nickel to your name.
So next time crack open that piggy bank, take a little moment to thank your parents. Because without them, there's no way you'd be able to afford all those SpongeBob Underpants you're going to make off with today.
