Levi "earned" his first dollar yesterday. A family friend was fixing my mom's washing machine. Levi was mesmerized. He sat with him until nap time and passed him tools. As we were leaving Levi got a whole dollar for being such a good little helper.
When we got home I pulled out a piggy (hippo) bank that was stashed away in the closet, and Levi got to put his very first dollar inside. And, then, of course, the piggy bank had to go to nap-nap too. It's hard work holding onto a dollar.
