A present for Jack December 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — jhintze @ 9:29 pm

A couple of weeks ago while eating breakfast at the former Mendoza’s, Phillip and I decided on a gift that we thought Jack would like. Jack has only been allowed to play video games for 45 minutes 2 days a week for most of his video game years. We occasionally let him have a little more time if he’s been really good or if we have company over who wants to play video games with him. But he’s getting a little bit older now and we thought maybe he could handle a little more video game time. So we decided to make him some cards and give to him that he can “cash in” to play video games. The easiest way for me to do this was just to design a business card in photoshop and order a box of them. A box of 50 cards cost me $12 with free shipping. We don’t really need 50 but that’s just the easiest way to do it. So at the beginning of the week we’ll give Jack 7 cards and he can use them when he wants to, within reason. And if he wants to use three in one day he can do that or he can use one a day. If he misbehaves too badly we’ll take a card away. So anyway, here is the card and they will be one of his presents on Christmas morning. He’s probably going to be totally thrilled to be given permission to play video games every day.

    That’s a great idea! I’d buy them if you were selling. 😉 That would work for t.v. time, too.

    Can I get in on the pool on how long it will take him to run out of cards the first week?
