Let this be a lesson to all parents out there.

Never leave cash around a toddler – especially little two-year-old Leo.

He or she just might shred the money to pieces.

From USA Today:

A Utah family says their toddler shredded an envelope containing more than $1,000 in cash meant to pay for football season tickets.

Ben and Jackee Belnap — of Salt Lake City, Utah — had saved for about a year to pay for University of Utah football season tickets, Jackee confirmed in a written comment to USA TODAY.

Jackee wrote that they kept the money “locked in a file cabinet until it was time to pay (Ben’s) parents. We then put it in an envelope.” That envelope was labeled “Utah Utes Tickets” and contained $1,060. Jackee said that they placed the envelope on a counter so they’d remember to deliver it to family.

The couple’s initial reaction? Laughter. Then some tears.

“We started laughing. We were just baffled that this could happen,” Ben told KSL.

“I cried for a minute. You can’t say we just laughed,” Jackee corrected with a smile.

However, there’s a silver lining.

A government mutilated cash division just might be able to replace the $1,060.

Although, the process can take anywhere from six months to three years.
