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.
