Guinea Pig 🐷

So my nine year old daughter is really into Guinea pigs 🐷 and she is on a mission to get one ☝️. Last night, my daughter (entrepreneur mindset) developed this entire well written contract that she wanted her father and I to sign. Now this contract was well thought 💭 out by my daughter because she strategically developed objectives and goals towards how she is going to get this guinea pig 🐷 by her tenth birthday. Not only only did she present a contract but she also had a calendar 🗓 that mapped out the days that counted down towards her birthday for the guinea pig 🐷. The objectives were so well thought out that my daughter even identified things that she needed to do daily (clean her room, no talking back to her parents, and staying on task) that I was at au. Now I’m thinking 🤔 to myself, the entire time my daughter has been playing me because she has known the entire time the things that she needed to do but now she is choosing to do them because she wants this guinea pig 🐷 🤦🏼‍♀️. Now these goals she had were specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. Now this contract really blew my mind (although I know my daughter is super smart) because I’m like in shock cause she has kept all this knowledge from me 🤷🏼‍♀️. She basically waited on the right time to play her cards ♦️. So my daughter and I sit down and review this contract that she presented- I acknowledged to her how proud of her I was that she took the time to develop something that she wanted and that she is going to need that skill in life amongst other skills. We also talked about being a businesswoman and how using SMART Goals early in life is going to her identify and think critical to create her entrepreneurial-ship path in life. Although this story started about a guinea pig 🐷, ultimately it turned into message for our children. Kids are our future and we have to use every moment as a teachable moment as much as possible because the world 🌎 will teach them otherwise. So in a nutshell, the countdown begins for the guinea pig 🐷 and the contract was signed 🙋🏻‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️. Let’s see what happens!!!! 🤷🏼‍♀️😳
