First Coin Bank

My son got his first coin bank over the weekend. It was part of the goody bag from the birthday party we attended in KFC at Sharjah.

I was really happy because it is included on Andreas' to-do list for this year that he should be acquainted with the idea of saving money - at least  in the form of a piggy bank. After showing him how to drop the dirham, he is now regularly reaching for top of our fridge where we place all our loose coins. This morning, he got upset because he wanted more serving of brownies ( he is limited to two slices). To soothe him, I gave him a dirham. He happily reach for it and went down from his high chair to look for his coin bank.

He sure is having fun dropping and shaking them after. I just don't know if he will still feel the same when he finally figures out that he can exchange the coins for a slice chocolate cake at the nearby confectionery ((^_^)).
