Perfect Moment Mondays -- One of These Things Is Not Like the Others...

Did you watch Sesame Street when you were little? If so, you might remember the song, "One of These Things Is Not Like the Others." It went like this:
One of these things is not like the others.
One of these things just doesn't belong.
Can you tell which thing is not like the others?
Hurry before I finish my song...
And then they would show you four things and one of them would be different.

Here is a quick video to refresh your memory --

When we were on our southern California trip over the holidays, my mom took the boys out to the beach to look for shells. The boys were SO excited when they found a bunch of sand dollars.

My mom was equally excited when she found her own sand dollar (the one on the bottom)...a shell with a dollar bill crumpled up and stuffed into it. It was perfect...not only finding the sand dollars (in all of their forms), but Mom/Grandma getting to spend time with the boys on the beach!

The entire vacation was just like that...priceless!

Your Mom's "Sand dollar" is very cool!

Weird. I wonder what the dollar in the shell was all about.

That's awesome. Did the boys spend the rest of the time looking for Grandma-style sand dollars?

What a great story! I love sand dollars.
