Life lesson

Life lesson at our house the other night… the two oldest girls want to raise Hamsters and sell them..I sat with them and came up with an expense list of “starting” their business. I personally had hoped that the expense list would stop the joint venture for lack of funds or no interest in spending their money on additional cages, food and water bottles, but they still could prove profit, even after spending the initial set up of an estimated $75 (I elevated the $$ even trying to get this discouraged), and had enough money to share the costs, so I guess as of last Saturday they are officially in the business of raising and selling Hamsters. I figure this school year they will just about be able to max out selling to their class and they had better hope they have new classmates next year to sell to - my life is crazy to say the least.

Couldn't they pick something better than HAMSTERS! Like maybe parakeets or something less rodent-like????
Hat's off to you ruthi. i would have LOST IT with just the mention of such a venture.

Hamsters don't live long. Maybe they will be able to sell replacement hamsters to the same clients if the parents are willing. You have little entrepreneurs on your hands! At least they didn't want to do rabbits. You would be overflowing with bunnies. Love the life lessons. Keep 'em coming. It seems like there is never a dull moment in the Coats' household!
