"Smarty Pants Money" and mom is missing!

If you haven't entered my giveaway please click here!
__________________________________________________

We pay bribe my daughter to make good grades in school with money!!!  What 12 year old doesn’t like money?  If you find one please let me know!    I have no shame in paying bribing her.  Whatever it takes for good grades!

Well, we received my daughter 1st six weeks report card and she made the A-B honor roll!!! Yippee, I’m jumping for joy doing the happy dance etc…

So, I decided to make a “Smarty Pants Money” jar as a reward bribe!!!   This will hold all of her money until the end of the school year!!!  If she doesn’t feel like studying or doing homework… I’ll just show her the “Smarty Pants Money” jar to get her motivated. (like that's going to work.)

If she makes a C she receives no money, and if she makes a D or below we take money away.  We have no shame in this house!!!

Take a look at what we did!!!




Made the "Smarty Pants Money" sign in Illustrator.
Got the ribbon at Wal-Mart!



We put the sign on the jar!



That's Emily holding the ribbon.  We used the glue gun to hold the ribbon on the lid.



We went around with the lid with the ribbon twice, she thought it looked better!



Here's the jar with no bow! What do you think?



Here is the jar with a bow! I can't decide if I like it better with the bow or without.
She likes it with the bow because of the bling!!! What do you think with or without the bow?



She likes it!!  I'm very proud of her for making the A-B honor roll!  Well deserved "E"

That's awesome! Good for Emily!

Yes, I did lose water weight from my new B/P meds. One of them is actually a water reduction pill.
I lost 13 pounds in 2 weeks a few weeks ago. Can you believe it? I wish the rest would come off that easy. HA! We are eating really healthy, walking and using our Bowflex. I'm determined to get off of these meds soon.

~Blessings, ~Melissa :)

Lori, I think this is a great idea and is motivation for her to strive to do better! Jimmy would probably never go for this idea, but I think it's wonderful.
