Spare Change Anyone?

So I'm totally taking advantage of my kids playing nicely together knowing full well that if I don't send them in new directions soon there will be blood. I don't care. I'm willing to risk it and take the time for myself. What's 20 minutes for a pint of blood? A good deal I tell you.

Then I hear "Ha! You have been arrested for putting money in your diaper, you shall receive 20 days in jail!"

Then, "Wait, she's getting away! Cut her off!"

**hypersonic squeal**

"No, over there....YES!!"

"Throw her in the dungeon!"

At which point I may have heard my shower door slam shut. And then I hear a sort of wet slapping sound and a baby whaling at the top of her lungs. It's muffled though so they must have a) gagged her or b) also shut the bedroom door.

And of course I think to myself - ewwww, why is she putting money in her diaper? I draw the line at fishing coins out of poop. I'd rather have the kids clean out water fountains if I got that desperate.

Hmm. Well, the change may be "dirty" but at least they've got terrific imaginations.

OMGosh. This rendition of your kids playing made my day. Thank you. I have now had a much needed laugh and also a tender reminder to never accept change from your children.

I think it's great that your first instinct when you heard your kids playing in the shower was about the dreaded dangers of fecal material.

I mean, sanitation WAS the single most important advance in modern civilization.

SO glad they have already learned this lesson at such a tender age.

Or not.
