Sometimes the things Momo says… I literally don’t need to write a comic. They spring fully-formed from her brain, and I am just the humble scribe.

In an effort to demystify money and budgeting, we don’t go out of our way to hide money talk from Momo. We want her to know, in a general sorta age-appropriate sense, that some people have more or less money than others so we need to be sensitive, and to be grateful for what we have, and to share with people who have less, that sort of thing. It’s a hard thing to do, figuring out how to impart those lessons (because she LOVES real-world examples) without, like, you know, giving her a complex or anything. The other day she told me she can’t wait to be a vet because she wants to help pay for things and I had to be like NO NO NO NO BABY THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS! which was, a whole thing. Parenting! Making it up as you go.
