Kid Economics

I have a friend who was looking to unload her Wii (along with Rock Band) and I also happen to have two children who would give their left arms to have a Wii. So I'm getting them the Wii. The kids have attempted saving toward a Wii on and off. Eventually they save enough to get something else they want, something less expensive, and blow all their savings. So when I told the boys that Wes and I were going to get this present for them my younger son looked concerned.

"Do you have enough money for it?"

I nearly laughed when he said it but I'm very happy he's thinking about what one can afford vs. what one wants.
