An exciting business opportunity
So Ashton's spare parts sled didn't really go together like she had hoped, so she decided to try and turn a profit. The other day Aiden comes running in the house and I hear the clinking of change being shaken out of his piggy bank. I ask him what he is doing and he tells me that Ashton is selling her sled parts for only a dollar and he wants to see if he has enough. I told him he wasn't allowed to buy garbage from the mountain and I went outside to see what was going on. Ahton had her parts spread out on the driveway with several neighbor kids checking out the merchandise. I didn't think the parents of these kids would appreciate the investment of their allowances in trash so I shut her operation down. Of course when I told Chris about it he thought it was great and said he totally would have let her do it. No suprise, this is the guy who loaded his sisters toys in a wagon and sold them to the kids of his neighborhood.
