Ben and Abby Sittin in a Tree…

Author: Steve Martin

Abby gets $100Abby is in love. She found a guy that she fell head over heels for. His name is Benjamin and she is willing to make major sacrifices for him. One year ago today Abby made a deal with her dad that she would go without eating any candy for an entire year for one Benjamin Franklin, one hundred buckaroos. This morning she got her first one hundred dollar bill and her eyes about popped out of her head she was so excited.

I am so proud of her for her determination and being able to accomplish something that most kids would never even dare to attempt. She received major inspiration from her aunt kaka who has been doing the “candy deal” since she was a little kid. While Abby was going to take a day to eat some candy before she started her next candy free year, she changed her mind and decided to simply continue on without candy for another year.

Her little brother Tyler is also doing the candy deal but he took an extra two months before committing to it. So, as long as he continues with the deal, he’ll get his $100 on March 17th. Good luck Tyler and congratulations Abby, I love you both and am so proud of you!!!
