When we were pregnant with Karter, someone gave us this little silver piggy bank. From the day we got it, any loose change we had went into the bank. Not much gets pat Karter, and he quickly picked up on putting money into the bank. When he passed the stage of putting everything in his mouth, we let him start putting his own money in and even taking money out just to put it back in. When we lived in MN it was a great way to occupy him for a bit. Kaden was way to little to get into the loose change, and Karter loved putting money in his piggy.
Karter still loves to put money in his piggy. He likes to stand on our bed to look at the top of the dresser to see if Daddy has left any change up there. One morning this week, Gramaw cleaned out her purse and left a huge pile of change on the table for Karter and Kaden to put in their banks. As soon as Karter came downstairs, before we said anything to him about the money, he said that he had to put that money in his bank. DO NOT leave money laying around him, he will definitely take it!
Kaden's piggy bank is much larger than Karter's, but no nearly as full. We were a little late in the game at getting Kaden's piggy bank. We actually just got it with a little birthday money that he got from Papaw Kenny. This was the first time he has been able to put his own money in, and I think he enjoyed it just as much as Karter.
