What is a 5 year old boy to do on a hot summer afternoon after returning from the park and discovering the cooler jug of lemonade sitting on the porch?
Why make a lemonade stand, of course!
But it’s tough to find customers when your house is in the country. After watching him chase down the lawnmower man trying to entice him to buy a drink, I decided to throw him a bone. I went in and found some dresser change.
“May I please have some lemonade?”
“Sure, mom…orange lemonade or banana lemonade?”
Apparently if lemonade is yellow it can be banana lemonade even if there is no banana in it!
Here is what 25 cents gets me…
Guess inflation is going up!
His sisters took my lead and each bought a glass too…some with quarters some with pennies.
This boy is quite entrepreneurial considering he won’t do chores for money. But he has been learning math and counting and he has been watching his older brother and sister with their pursuits of earning and spending money. I think he wants some of that!
His take home pay…
53 cents…or, as he argued with his sister, $39! Well, tomato, tomahto…I’m just pleased he’s taking initiative!
And, because I couldn’t resist, a little girl drinking lemonade appropriately attired in a citrus dress handmade by grandma, passed down twice! Nothing could be sweeter to pair with a little sour!
