"Washington Post" Features Latter-day Saint Couple After Their 2-Year-Old Shreds $1,060


“As devastated and as sick as we were,” Jackee Belnap told News4Utah after her 2-year-old son shredded $1,060, “this was one of those moments where you just have to laugh.”

There are the toddlers who throw tantrums in the grocery store and flush watches down the toilet. There are others who color with permanent marker all over the wall or decide a sibling, or a pet, needs a haircut.

Then, there are the 2-year-olds who know how to work a paper shredder.

Leo Belnap is one such 2-year-old.

So me and my wife had been saving up to pay for our @Utah_Football tickets in cash. We pulled our money out yesterday to pay my mom for the season... Well we couldn’t find the envelope until my wife checked the shredder. Yup. 2 year old shredded $1,060. — BB (@Benbelnap) October 2, 2018
