Pennies From Heaven

Daughter thinks of her pull-ups as a big purse that conveniently holds all her spare change. Which gives a whole new meaning to the term "spending a penny". We're pretty good about keeping loose coins out of reach. Mostly because I need them to dump into the CoinStar and pay for gas. But changing her after a visit to Grandma and Grandpa's is like hitting a Vegas jackpot. In fact, I think it's safe to say that at any given time daughter's ass is worth anywhere from 50 cents to 3 dollars.

The other day I was counting out .28 cents at the grocery store and realized that most of these coins had seen the backside of no-man's land. I started laughing manically and couldn't stop. So the cashier sort of raised an eyebrow at the crazy lady cackling over her fistful of coins. Bwaa-ha-ha!! But I had realized that daughter's just been applying an age old confidence technique known as the ass-penny move. Watch.

She'd be handy to have around when you need to feed the meter.

Oh, I feel a money making scheme here. You just need to come up with some excuses for why you have to drop by all your neighbors' and friends' homes with daughter in tow. If you visit enough homes, you could be talking about a small fortune in small change. Having your very own coin klepto could turn out to be a good thing.

Did you see the "most embarrassing kid story" contest on Flea's One Good Thing blog? I'm reminded of the naked girl who announced to her dad's poker group, "Daddy, look, I have a pocket!"
