Did you know that in the story of the Three Little Pigs, the mama pig gives each pig a quarter each week and tells her little piggies to save them for something important? The first pig buys candy with his, the second spends his on new clothes, the third saves his money. At the age of eighteen their mama sends them out into the world. The size of their savings determines how they choose their building materials once they move out. I had never heard the entire story until H read it to the babies last week. The full fairy tale is a good little economic lesson.
We had a good "first" Halloween as the three little pigs. Last year we had our bunch swaddled in bed by trick-or-treat time. Last night the babies held up for the three and a half hours and ten stops of trick-or-treating. They got bubbles, fun bath soap, some good candy, and a lot of loving.
