....but mommy it is just paper.

I handed my son his winnings from the NCAA pool last night. He takes the envelope and opens it up. He fans out the money and says with a big look of disappointment ....but mommy it is just paper. I did a slight chuckle. I guess he is used to change since that is what we give him. I told him that hockey helmets cost paper money and that he needed to hang on to that until we get to the store. He went in to his room and a few minutes later he came out with a bunch of strips of regular paper. He asked me if that was enough for a new stick. Clever, but I explained to him that money was on a special paper and that play money is not to buy real things. Seemed to work for now.
