Monday Listicles

List of 10 costumes 10 days before Halloween.

That is the name of the game today. Chosen by Bridget from Twinisms and Ellen from Sisterhood of Sensible Moms. How do you like that? Gives you all a chance to show off costumes you wore in the past or ideas you have for this year. Or like me, you panic and look for cute things to pin on Pinterest. The kind of costumes I will never venture into making or I would not torture my dog to wear. But they are cute. That is my story and I am sticking to it. I am however very excited to see your lists!

My sweet bloggy friend Bridget is on a roll and full of ideas. She suggested we do

and I like this a lot so come back next week with a LIST OF 10 FIRSTS.

I am dressing up for Halloween for the first time with Little J this year so I promise you a picture of that.

For now my costumes are random fun things I found that are not related to me at all. Show me what you got!
 
Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

Bank talk

Remember last week when I talked about my son and his big plan on borrowing money from the bank?

For some reason I have now become popular as a source of knowledge on banking. I mean sure, I was able to explain to my four year old the basic concept on borrowing money from the bank and returning it with interest once you have made profit. For any more detailed information on banks I would suggest using websites like Know Your Bank, who can help you compare your local banks with all kinds of data and even reviews. In fact they have a page dedicated to glossary of financial terms like common stock ( not cows and sheep, the other kind ) and total deposits ( which is what my husband will be doing for the rest of his life according to Little J).

My husband will agree neither Little J nor I are subject experts when it comes to handling money.

Further more a while ago we were building a whole town with Legos, as we do often. Little J was in charge of the bank and he build a long road, some lights, a little ATM box and a gate. When I asked him where the rest of the bank is he looked at me baffled.

Little J: What do you mean the rest of the bank?

Me: You know, the building.

Little J: What building?

Me: Building, with doors and windows and offices inside.

Little J: Banks are in buildings?

Turns out I have never taken my son into a bank before. He thought driving through and picking up money from the ATM is banking…

As a special treat I took him with me the other day to make some deposits to a checking account. He loved it. The ladies told him he was handsome and gave him a pen. No ATM does that right?
