So, I'm sitting here at the computer trying to relax before bed. I'm VERY frustrated with my 2 year old DS because he just won't give in and go to sleep...and it is 2 hours after his bed time! He had his piggy bank emptied and I told him that the money needed to be put away because it was way past his bed time. So, I think he will finally go to sleep. He comes walking into the room and I tell him (in my stern voice) that he needs to go back to bed. He looks at me and starts crying, but keeps walking towards me. I ask him what he is doing. He is bringing me money. He gives me the coins in his hand. I ask him what they are for (we never take the money out of the bank, except to deposit it in his account). He says "They are to pay the bills, Mommy." Talk about melting my heart...how can I be upset with him after that?

The only time we have mentioned it is when we tell him Daddy has to work so we have money to pay the bills.
