Munchkin and her "Shange"

Lately the Munchkin has been obsessed with change, "shange" as she says. So I will let her take the change out of my wallet and play, usually ending up with dimes and pennies all over the house.

The other day, I thought I could use this play time as a learning experience by trying to teach her what each one was. She is pretty good at picking out a penny, I'm guessing because of it's color. She started getting quarter right, so I thought I would move on to the dime and nickel. I was explaining to her what they were, and that a dime is kind of like a little quarter. When I went back through them to see if she could remember, I picked up the quarter and said, "Munchkin, can you tell me what this is?" She thought for a second and then said, "Big Dime"

I love her!
