College Boy is Catching On

It is one of the proudest moments in a parent’s life when they see their child get it. All of the teaching, or preaching, finally sinks in and they respond in a manner you have been pushing for years.

Last night was one of those moments. We stopped for milkshakes on the way home, but didn’t pick one up for college boy.

When we brought them in, he tried to hide mine and accidentally hid my husband’s. (I keep a close eye on my treats!)

He didn’t get the same reaction from my husband as he would have from me! That took the fun out of it and the wind out of his sails.

He decided he wanted a milkshake. In the past, he would have grabbed the truck keys and headed out for one. Last night he went to the kitchen and made his own.

I was so happy!

This is not the first time he has shown the frugality gene. You can read a few examples below.

“Substitute Guitar Picks”
“Refinished Drums”

It was also not his first time in the kitchen!

“College Boy Makes a Pumpkin Pie”
“Pie Crust So Simple Your Son Could Make It”

I was even happier when I saw him run the clean cycle on the blender!

I asked for his recipe, and after he listed the ingredients, he said, “Are you going to blog about it? I didn’t give you a copyright to that!”
