I’m an earnest saver, it’s something my parents taught me at a very young age. I can remember walking up to up to the neighborhood bank with my passport saving book, my allowance and my sister. We’d deposit our money and stop at Bridgeman’s for an ice cream cone on the way home. Oh, the memories.
It’s never too early to teach kids to save, right? Elisabeth received a cute princess piggy bank as a baby gift from Tom and Pat, my parents neighbors. Grandpa put the first quarter in and I’ve randomly been adding my leftover change.
Lately, Elisabeth has found great fun in putting things into containers. So I gave her a fist full of pennies and let her drop them in the bank. It took a little practice to get them in the slot but she was a pro in less than a minute.
Elisabeth says, “I am ALL DONE!” When she say she’s done, she means it. I tried giving her a few more pennies however, she just wanted to eat them. I’m pretty sure we’ve already had enough hospital visits.
