Obviously, he doesn't get an allowance, yet. He'd just eat it, anyway.
That had me ROFL! I'm picturing your two-year-old eating a dollar bill and some quarters while looking around to see if anyone's watching!

My ds doesn't have any chores yet, but he can't even roll over or reliably hold onto a rattle yet. We do believe in chores, though, and he will have some starting early. If I hadn't had chores as a kid I would have never learned to cook for myself!
