Deece in MN Posted February 13, 2008 Share Posted February 13, 2008 Hi, A friend of ours is having a Valentine's swim party at a waterpark tomorrow and invited my dd. The cost is $8. She also does occasional activities with a Catholic hs group and they are having a teen bowling night tomorrow that she invited my ds to; cost $10. This month is our first month with a budget on paper that we are trying very hard to stick to. We allocated $20 for entertainment. My dilema is, do we give this months entertainment fund to the kids so they can go to these outings? Or do we say no to these activities and use the money to do something as a family? I think my dh would like us to do something as a family, though he hasn't come out and said so. We don't want to deny our dc opportunities to do things with others, but on the other hand my dh wanted to use that money for a family bowling night this month. What would you do? Also, my ds would miss the first hour of the bowling because he has Judo. He would only know the 2 boys of the family that invited him and one of them for sure will be leaving early, possibly both. We don't know anyone else in this group and I would feel awkward if we showed up and the boys he knows are not there. Also, I am thinking that if we don't do one, we don't do both so that we can use the funds for a family outing. What would you do? Thanks!
