The Power of the Mighty Dollar

Today at school Holland tried to buy himself some stars. That doesn't sound too bad. Except he wanted to buy stars to be able to "buy" something from the class treasure box. Stars are earned for good behavior, but Holland figured he could purchase stars for $5. He actually had five dollars (I still don't know where he got that from. He spends his money before it's burned a hole in his pocket). I asked him about it at home.

"Can you ever buy stars with money at school?"
"Why did you try to today?"
"I was just trying to come up with something creative."

So, obviously money is his 'language of love'. He can remember that he gets $5 for a blood draw to check a Depakote level, but he can't remember to put underwear on everyday.
