Girls Write Out
Sunday, September 14, 2008

My 16 year old son came home from the mall with a shocking announcement: he bought something. Justin doesn't buy things. He might take his girlfriend out to dinner and to a movie, but other than that, his money collects in his wallet like quarters in a slot machine. (My 12-year old came up with that similie. I'm so proud.)

The irresistable item that followed Justin home? A $70.00 pair of Notre Dame shoes. His first words after showing them to me were, "I didn't have to think twice, Mom."

I guess we all have our weaknesses. For me? A great fitting, comfy pair of jeans. I'll plunk down good money for jeans that make my short chunky legs look long and lean.

Kevin will pay good money for a meal at a nice restaurant. I try not to take that personally.

Chad likes shoes. Trevor likes, well, anything that has a dollar sign in front of it. I guess Justin got all the saving genes, but even he has his weak spot. I'm more the saver overall and I'd say Kevin is more of a spender. We balance each other nicely in that area and many others.

Which side of the scales do you fall on: saver or spender? If you have a spouse, does he balance you out?
