My little girls are super savers. Yes you read that right. Their piggy banks were over flowing and since we had their new school saver account, why not deposit the money into that. Who knew that each child would have nearly a $100 each in their new school bank account (some was from birthday money). I was amazed and floored when I found the amounts, very proud of each of my girls. They have done a super job to save and put all their money into their piggy bank.
One downside was I accidentally broke Lillian’s much loved piggy bank. I do have the pieces so I can glue it back together, but it might never be the same again. She was so upset. Tears and crying at the bank. I felt miserable. I had taken such great care with it, had it all protected and then taking it out it got bumped and then it smashed.
After we deposited the money into the accounts I asked the teller if we could get piggy banks for the girls. I explained that one broke and I needed to replace it and get one for the other child also. We got the new piggy banks and kids are very pleased with them. Thank goodness for that. 🙂
I have shown each kid their account on the computer with the amount and their name. Each girl brimmed from ear to ear and looked very pleased with themselves. Wonder how much they will have in the account when they are 18? If mummy and daddy need a loan I think we know who to ask.
We now need to contribute to the account and when kids are at school next year they will do so as well. Maybe kids each week can go in and make a $5.00 deposit each? We will see. At least the accounts are off to a good start.
Are your kids super savers?
