A penny for your thoughts...

My wonderful husband has a wooden box of pennies that he has been collecting for I don't know how long. It weighs a ton, and it's starting to get full. I used to keep all of my spare change in a great big pickle jar, but Sam likes to keep the silver separate from the pennies. So we combined the two and the pickle jar now holds all of the silver coins and the box keeps the pennies separate. Both are kept in our closet for convenience (so you can empty your pockets at the end of the day).



The boys have discovered the penny box.

Not only did they do what you can see here, there are pennies everywhere in my house. They are in between all of our clothes on the shelves in our closet. I had to dump out the large pickle jar to remove and separate all the pennies out from the silver coins. I had to fish some pennies out of the toilet in my bathroom (thank you, Jonah), and I found some in my bed (?), under the sink in my bathroom and in my bathtub.

Pennies aren't my favorite right now.

I guess no one has to say, "A penny for your thoughts", huh? Not so funny right now, but trust me, years from now you will all laugh about this many times :)...so cute!
Hopefully no one decided to eat one. That happened at my house. "Oops Mom, I didn't try. It just disappeared in my mouth"

I'm laughing out loud (and I don't even have to leave the room).

So sorry. Let's just hope they don't try and stick them in your CD player. Jonathan did that to our stereo when he was little, and Cole did it to the one in our van . . . irreversible!
