Mom, Dad, and Money

I was volunteering in Deep Thinker’s class doing the “Monday folders.” This involves stuffing all of the news and important papers into folders to take home. As I was doing this, the class had a discussion about money. The teacher asked, “How much money is two quarters?”

My son raised his hand, and the teacher called on him. He said “Fifty cents.” Then she said, “Yes, and how do we get that answer?”

My son’s response: “My mommy and daddy told me.” Then the teacher continued, “Well, yes, but how do we know how much it is?”

My son explained, “I know because my mommy and daddy tell me about important stuff like money and lots of other things.”
