Henry is really into money right now. He got a wallet for Christmas and he is obsessed with carrying it everywhere and keeping a little jingle in it. They just don't make the back pockets on little boys' pants big enough to carry one. I caught him "stealing" coins out of my wallet yesterday. I felt like I did a good job explaining why we don't do that. But, today, I caught him again, and he was being very sneaky about it. That boy!
Tonight we were sitting and talking about his money, and he was showing me the different coins that he had acquired. He likes the pennies best! He laid one down and asked, "Mommy, who is that man?" I said, "Why, honey, that is Abraham Lincoln..." I'm about to go into who he was when he asked, "Is he on TV?"
