About 5 a.m. the other morning I reached over and grabbed my iPhone from its resting place next to me in bed (I think there used to be a woman there). I opened my email to find three emails from Amazon.com alerting me to purchases I’d just made. One was a Loony Tunes episode of a certain Wile E. Coyote.
Stumbling through my darkened house I found my way into the living room. There on the couch wrapped in a blanket and cuddling a fluffy stuffed dog was my 7-year-old with the Kindle his grandmother had just purchased him for his birthday. I realized at that moment there was a downside to that one-click purchase feature on Amazon.
By 5:30 a.m. we’d completed a crash course on personal finance and responsibility. Thankfully, he’s a quick learn. Wish I could say the same for Wile E. Coyote.
