  • 2-year-old Sends $1,000 in Cash Through Shredder	 	 	 			Shredded money from a Federal Reserve Bank

There is still hope that the couple will get their money back - albeit in an year or two - thanks to a government office that deals with mutilated cash.

Teaching your children the value of money is one of the many life lessons you will give as a parent.

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

The Belnaps have been saving up money for the previous year to pay Ben's parents back for University of Utah football season tickets. The white envelope the couple stored the money in mysteriously disappeared. They searched the house - even through the trash - looking for the missing cash, they told the station. "I looked through that and then it made me think to look in the shredder".

"Leo had no idea he did anything wrong", said Jackee, "It felt unfair to get mad and he probably doesn't even know what cash is as we use our credit card for nearly everything".

One Utah couple's savings has taken a considerable blow after their toddler accidentally destroyed $1,000. "Majority are just amusing, and we laugh about them for days and big jokes, but this was one of those moments that wasn't his greatest, but we love him", said mom Jackee.

The couple said they might yet be able to retrieve their money with help from the U.S. Department of Treasury, but it won't be available in time for football tickets.

The currency "must be forwarded to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing for examination by trained experts before any redemption is made", the website says.
