Kid Arithmetic

By Bruce Firestone | Uncategorized

Oct 31

I helped one of my five kids (my middle daughter–Mimi) buy a home.

She needed $100,000 for her downpayment and some renos. The rest she could finance via a mortgage.

Miriam put up $5k and pops put up the rest; during the buying process she asked: “But it’s still 50-50 right, Dad?”

That’s kid arithmetic.

And, yes, Miriam, it’s still 50-50.

I mean, what is the purpose of life if not to help your children, spouse, friends, neighbors and community? 

Love you Meemsie,
