This morning I got a great idea from the Today show to start chores and an allowance with children as young as two. I thought to myself, how could that be bad. Tonight Lillian assisted with cleaning the table and putting things away in her room. I attempted to explain what her "chores" will be and told her she would receive 2 pennies per day for doing them. She could use the pennies to buy something she wants at the store or save them. We got out a little cup to store her money. She goes, "Okay mama, but how about 5 pennies." I thought to myself, smart girl. "Okay, 5 pennies."
