I love the idea of creating a sense of belonging for your children by increasing their knowledge of their heritage and making them feel like they are part of something bigger. So now I tell Phineas stories about his namesake ancestor, how he was baptized in the Kalamazoo River in 1844, came across the plains, etc. I will implement the money-earning system when he is older. After reading this, though, I decided he was a little too indulged, contrary to my best intentions, so now when he asks for a toy, I tell him he can "earn" it. The other day, as we walked by the huge balls at Wal-Mart, he said, "Mom, can I earn one of vose [those] balls?" I was impressed. He learns quickly!
