The 10 Year Plan of a 6 Year Old

"Mommy, when I grow up, know what kind of car I'm gonna have? The fastest car in. the. world."

"Wow Nathan, that is going to cost a lot of money."

"I know Mommy, but I have a plan. "

"Oh yeah?"

"I am going to open a lemonade stand and people will pay $10 for lemonade. But I'm only going to have it one day a week because I have other things I need to do."


"And then I'm going to take the money I make and save it in my bank with the lid that tells me how much money I have and when I my bank is full, I am going to get a big cardboard box and spill all of my money into the box."

I started to ask why Nathan wasn't interested in putting the money in the bank but decided that it would be ill advised to question a plan that was so clearly well thought out.


  1. Truly he thinks outside of the box (bu bump ching)

    I love that kid!!

  2. He has amazing plans. Maybe I should ask him what I should do with my IRA...

  3. I was just lamenting to my neighbors that the kids up the street are charging 50 cents a cup let alone $10 a cup. What's Nate selling, limoncello?

    If so, thank you sir, I'll have another!

  4. Oh, yes. Limoncello....count Aunt Michelle in!!!
