This made me smile.
My youngest son got a number of cards and a couple of checks from his loving relatives for his 5th Birthday yesterday. (Thank you everyone! Very, very kind of you.) In the process of going through his gifts and getting settled in last night, the checks were set aside on the table in the family room.
Didn’t think twice about it until I got home from work today. I went to pick the checks up from the table…but they were gone.
I wasn’t worried about it, as I figured they had gotten pushed off the table or perhaps shoved under the rug. Not there though. Didn’t see them anywhere else either.
The next reasonable guess was that the boys had packed the checks in their backpacks as they got ready for school this morning. They like to take stuff with them. I assumed that was it and was about to send a text to their Mom to see if that was in fact the case…but then I checked one last spot.
Inside their piggy bank, I found two checks – folded in half and tucked away for our beach trip this summer. The boys had actually put something in their savings on their own without me telling them to do so. Couldn’t believe it. Way to go, guys. Proud Dad here 🙂
