My husband leaves his change all over the house. Eventually, he'll roll it up and deposit it at the bank. Sometimes he'll put his spare change in cups until they fill up.
Today I was doing something in the study and AC was with me. She saw one of his cups full of change and said, "Mommy, can I put this in my piggy bank?"
"Sure," I answered. "Your daddy wouldn't mind."
So she takes this full cup into her room and starts putting the change in her piggy bank. After a while, she says, "Mommy, will you help me?" I walked in and saw that she only had about ten coins left.
I started putting them in her bank and noticed something.
It was Canadian money.
Probably left over from our last trip to visit his family.
So now AC has a piggy bank partly full of Canadian coins. I guess she won't be using it to buy gum or toys anytime soon. Lucky for us the exchange rate is pretty equal right now. I'm just hoping it's that way when we decide to empty her piggy bank :)
