Hearing a toddler’s perspective on money is always so interesting. Here’s the conversation Joshua and I had this afternoon.
Joshua: I don’t want you to go outside.
Me: I thought you wanted to go to the park.
Joshua: I don’t want you to go to photo shoots, and I don’t want daddy to go to work.
Me: Awww, baby, but we need to work to make money to live here.
Joshua (with a big smile): I have money!
Me (a little surprised): Really? Where?
Joshua (runs towards me, rattling his piggy bank): Here, I have lots of money!
Me: Oh, thank you, baby! That’s not quite enough money.
Joshua (still sounds hopeful): It’s ok, Mommy, we can buy more money at the bank!
