Bookie I sparkle my eyes, clap my hands and rub them together much like ol' Scrooge did when the kiddos bring cash! I always thank them profusely and tell them what wonderful folks they are! I sincerely like my kids AND gifts of cash and it shows. They know I'm working to get the house paid off before Dad retires and I keep nicely threatening that they can help me now or help me later! ...and that they'll likely have to do both, but any little thing that they can do now will dull their financial drain later! he-heeee!!
Actually they are just good kids all around and they see that I'm very conservative with stewarding what I do get and they want to help. Or maybe it's just embarassing to have your Momma scrounging on the ground picking up pennies out of the street drains?????????
