I didn't attack; I explained my logical reasons for not sharing my proud mommy moments with two people who will note down a mangled version of events and then mock my loved ones over things they never did.  

and I only asked to be polite.  I don't actually care.

Then don't ask.

 It's cute that her kid was so generous with her money.

Well who else's money would it be? Until your child gets a job where they are making money on their own, it is usually YOUR money.

It's their money if it was earned through chores, good report cards, or gifted.

.  it's cute that the kid gave away her money.  It would be generous if it were his own money.  Most kids, IME, earn $$$ or have gift money, allowance, etc by the time they are eight or nine.  But I know the feeling.  My preschoolers used to take quarters from the change drawer at home to donate to Sunday School.  It was cute.

It STILL comes from YOU, no one else. Sigh......

Are you really that confused on transfer of ownership?

If I give my 5 year old a dollar, it's no longer my money. Just like when I spend a dollar at a store.

Also, when you sigh, do you suck your teeth and roll your eyes, too? Because that's how I imagine it.

The money YOU give them is still coming from YOU. No matter how you want to slice and dice it. They are not earning their OWN money until they have a job outside of the house and a company pays them, not their parents.

They got it from YOU. They didn't earn it at a job. It is coming out of YOUR pocket no matter how you want to slice and dice it.
