Never Heard A Complain At All

These past few days, I’d been so busy doing some school stuffs merely covering my kids books especially with Faith so that her stuffs won’t easily get torn up. After I covered her school books, she begged me to cover also her newly purchased books. She got 3 books for the land of stories. She had Book 2, Book 3 and Book 5 and all of it was not covered, she noticed that it was easily damaged so she asked me to cover the new one. I told her I would only cover her books if she would help and she was willingly lent me a hand. I guessed she was enjoying it because I didn’t hear any complain at all.

I Will Know When I Get There

I’d been planning to buy Faith her school supplies, she is very excited about it but her Dad would wire us some funds later in the afternoon yet. So maybe tonight we can already start buying her school supplies. I need to spend our money wisely since I will resign very soon; I am just rendering my one month notice. I am still contemplating either to apply to another company or not yet. I want to stay home yet to take good care of my kids but I am afraid we can’t afford all the expenses. I don’t know, I will know when I am already in the situation.

Faith keeps on telling me that she saw a Wanted sign near her school, I might be interested since it is near at work. You know how kid’s thinks, I hope it is that easy and I hope that even if I only take the Secretary jobs it can level the earnings with what I have now but not of course the salary will be too little that it could not even support my transportation. As I said I will know when I am already in the situation.

If I am there and I realized that I have so many things to sacrifice to live without work and if I would find out that I might sacrifice also my kids needs then that’s the time that I will start looking for work again, probably in a BPO since they are the only company that can accept me despite of my age.

I will know when I am in that situation, and I will decide but hopefully we can afford to support everything even without me working. I am hoping, I will know when I get there.

Surprising The Little Ones With Their Own Piggy Banks

I wanted to surprise the children with something special, so I decided to order them personalized piggy banks. I added some spare change to each one rather than surprising them with empty banks. They were very excited to receive piggy banks with their names on them, and I am excited to watch them earn coins and learn how to count money. The following benefits may encourage you to surprise your own little one with a personalized piggy bank.

You can find different ways for your children to earn money for their piggy banks. It could be small chores such as cleaning up their toys or helping you to fold the laundry. Older children may want to set up a lemonade stand or help clean out the garage. You are teaching them how to be responsible and earn money at a young age, and this is something they will carry with them as they grow older.

This brings me to the second benefit, which is showing them how fun it is to save their money for something special. Your child may want to spend their money on candy or other treats the minute they receive it. One idea is to let them work towards a small prize, such as a toy or book. Imagine the smile on their face when they realize they have enough money for their prize.

The third benefit is more about the piggy bank itself rather than what is inside it. There is something about receiving a personalized gift that makes children feel special. When you have a ceramic piggy bank personalized, you are adding a personal touch that may not be found in other items. You can even look for a piggy bank in their favorite color or pattern to add a more personal touch. Your child will still use their piggy bank when they are older.

It is very easy to order a personalized piggy bank for your little one. The first thing you do is select a bank in their favorite color or pattern. You are going to add their first name and select the gift wrap and card options. Place your order and wait for their gift to be delivered.

My children were so excited to receive their customized piggy banks, and I know your children are going to love their personalized gifts as well.
