How much is it worth?

Like all good ideas our chocolate milk reward for staying in their bed has run it's course with the Triplets.  The CFO came up with another idea... money.  First we went to $.25 per night for each kid when they stay in their bed.  Jackson still got in our bed every night but then added getting very upset in the morning to the mix when his brother and sister got their quarters.

So we upped the ante.  The CFO also wanted to start an allowance for them, $4 per week with $1 going to giving, $2 to savings and $1 they could spend or save.  Now not only do they get their quarter but if they don't stay in their bed they give us a quarter.  Still no movement on the bed situation.  Oh well, at least he does not seem to be very materialistic:)

Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one.
Benjamin Franklin

They say money doesn't make you happy but I have never seen a sad person on a jet ski.
