He asked to take on extra jobs around the house to save money for it. I told him to be sure he wanted it since it was going to take him a few weeks to earn it. He said he was and was determined to earn it and quick.
When he had enough, we headed back to the store for the purchase. Sadly, what he wanted was no longer in stock but store clerk offered to order it and have it sent to the store (to avoid shipping charges).
So he wouldn't leave empty handed, his sweet, older brother footed the bill for a toy out of his own allowance.
Several days later, the call finally came. His Angry Birds Board Game had arrived!
After he played a little bit, I asked him if he liked it. He said he did. When I asked him what his favorite thing about the game was, he answered, playing with his brother.
He's pretty sweet too. Money well spent then, son.
