At kindy the suggested budget is 300 yen, that is a LOT of junk and I have always had a really hard time sending along that much. At school the limit is 200 yen which still comes out to a lot of food but Noodle reckons he will be able to eat it all. It's all very disgusting and unhealthy stuff but it's not our normal food so it's OK I guess.
The good mums take their kids along to the shops so they can pick out their favourites. The lazy mums, like me, grab things at the supermarket that will do, and make their kids take them. Noodle was a little disappointed that he wasn't going to be choosing his own food from the real shops so I decided to make a shop at home: Mummy's Snack Shop. Little Guy and I had a lovely time pricing everything, making money, credit cards and name tags. Noodle was a cooperative customer and diligently made sure he did not overspend (I am not sure if we are really related, I do not have the thrifty gene)
Little Guy was the manager of course. I thought it was clever of him to explain how we would staff the shop. If I wanted to have a break then he would be on duty and vice versa. If we both needed a break we would put the closed sign up. He definitely has the entrepreneurial spirit.
