I know my kids have a lot on their plate.  School alone takes up a lot of time. Then you add the homework, sports schedules, scouts and other extra curriculars and you've got a lot of scheduling to think of.  Taking them back & forth, place to place adds up quite the gas bill.  Then think of the food they constantly are in need of.  If you added THAT all up, you'd seriously consider why you got into this parenting game.

It may be time for my kids to start pulling their own weight.  According to Ad Age there are two little twerps are making $128,000 a month on YouTube!!


I'm going to have a talk with my kids.  It's going to start with downsizing their toy surplus (to sell on ebay) and move into a survey about ideas to exploit any natural talents.
