As much as a wife trusts God and has faith in Him, she really doesn’t have control over her mood when she’s broke!
It’s quite scary when you know that your very demanding kids may need stuff at any point in time and you just can’t give it to them. When you even try to explain, they choose not to understand your ‘gibberish’!
I still don’t understand why kids’ demand rate is higher when you are ‘financially raped flat’!
Yesterday, while I was picking my kids from school, my first daughter gave a list of her ‘Mummy, I want’s and I simply asked her “Why don’t you just get it that I AM BROKE?!”
My last daughter feeling sorry for her older sister retorted, “Mummy, why do you say that all the time? You can rob a bank! Parents do that for their kids!”
Now, I hope for her sake, that was a joke right?!…it had to be. Anyway, I chose to ignore her.
Much later that day, I was suddenly all chatty chatty and generally laughing at my son’s dry jokes (yeah, they can be that dry! I’ve told him to work on them)…he suddenly looks at me and says, “Mummy, you’re acting all weird! Lemme guess…You have seen money!”
And I am like…Waaat? This guy is sooo right!
…I got an alert that said ‘MONEY’…Yay!!
