Breaking open the piggy bank

When Taipan was a baby he received a pretty cool piggy bank as a gift. A couple of times he's mentioned wanting to open it, but moved on so we didn't do it. Tonight he asked me to open it again. After struggling with some weird internal dialogue about it just not being right to open the piggy bank, I said "Sure! Let's get a screwdriver."

Now the kids are sitting on the floor in the hallway putting all of the coins into the dinosaur's mouth one by one. If I'd known how much they would enjoy this, I would have done it months ago! It's certainly keeping them busy, so I think I'll go have dinner in peace.
