Maggie had been playing quietly up in her room for some time the other day, and when I went in there later, this is what I found. She'd been happily humming to herself while she divided out her allowance money (she never spends any of it) and clipped stacks of it it together with sparkly flower barrettes. Fiscally feminine!
Would you like to know the real kicker? The thing that really makes me shake my head? Each of those little packets is arranged by the first letter of the serial number on each dollar. She's organizing her allowance by serial number. I'm not kidding.
|See - all A's!|
This is how my 5-year old spends her free time. Something tells me that I should kiss up to her a little more so that she'll take care of me when I get old and she has all the money.
