The Fidelity Fiduciary Bank!

She's Back! And with "back," another Nicholas sleepover and the Waffle House jukebox came and went just before the weekend!

But today, Friday, felt like the weekend because Donica took the day off. Well, sort of. She did some early-morning business calls from home and then she was off. After Waffle House, our main business of the morning was putting Nicholas' wrapped-coins "24 money" (see 6/12 post) in the bank. We wanted him with us as we opened up his account, hoping something about putting money in the bank sticks. You think?

It's hard and boring to sit still in a bank, waiting for the lady to finish up with someone else! So Nicholas and I walked up and down the sidewalk outside till we got the energy out of our systems and then did all that paperwork back inside. B-o-r-i-n-g!

But the customer-service lady was quite impressed with the business transaction and made Nicholas feel he had done some really cool thing (she has a Nicholas grandson, too, a year older). Donica was the one who did the cool thing, of course. I think she envisions a car outta this some day in the not-too-distant future! Thinking ahead.

I came back home with Mary Poppins in my head!

When you deposit tuppence in a bank account
Soon you'll see
That it blooms into credit of a generous amount
And you'll achieve that sense of stature
As your influence expands
To the high financial strata
That established credit now commands.

Ah yes. Tuppence, patiently, cautiously, trustingly invested in the, to be fiduciary bank!


  1. SOOOOOOOO cute! It is incredibly fun that you have photos of this experience!! I just love it.


  2. True indeed, Ruth. I guess that's what grandparenting is do it all better the second time around!
