Hungry Piggy !

We've started a new nightly ritual.

Recently Elaina noticed her piggy bank that sits upon the highest shelf of her bookcase. Out of nowhere, she began pointing at her pig and so we pulled him down for a visit. Eric went downstairs and raided all of my spare change to "feed" the piggy bank. We dropped some coins onto the carpet and one, by one, Elaina carefully loaded her treasure into her pig. Clink by clink, the biggest smiles crossed her face.

She is so diligent to drop the money directly into the slot and beems with pride on a job well-done. I have been giving her five coins each night and I count coin by coin in an effort for her to become familiar with her numbers too. Talk about "enriching" your child !
