Early Lessons in Capitalism

In these perilous times of economic woe, here's something a bit more lighthearted when it comes to the shaky world of finance. John painted this cute little piggy bank at a summer camp in July. I figured the age of 3 isn't too early to start learning about one of the things that makes the world go 'round...money!

Smart boy. He already recognizes that his money is really mine.

He liked putting the coins in and hearing them clink against one another. Yeah, it's a great sound, literally and figuratively!

An important philosophy in life: Who needs pants when you have money?

I need to start doing more to teach my kids about money. Thanks for the idea----they are never too young for these lessons.

Suddenly I have more hope for our economic troubles :D What a cutie he is and yes, I believe with enough $$$$ pants could be optional...

He is so cute! My son is 3 and he loves putting money in his bank, but then gets upset because he wants it back out. Cute!

That's our cutie. I think the Piggy bank appeals to his organized side. John just loves putting things away where they belong (which he most definitely did not get from me). If only we could be sure he would keep his money in his bank for the rest of his life!
