The parents of a toddler in Utah have learnt an important lesson about keeping money in a safe place, out of reach of little hands.

When Ben and Jackee Belnap – who are crazy over American football – received season tickets from Ben’s parents to watch their favourite team, the Utah Utes, they decided to save up to pay them back for the kind gesture, reports People.

They kept the savings in a white envelope and when it had R15 669 inside they decided to do a handover.

After searching high and low for the envelope, the couple panicked wondering where the cash had vanished to, reports ABC 4.

After looking under rugs, in the couch and in drawers they finally found tiny strips of the notes in the shredder.

Who was the culprit? Their son, little Leo Belnap.

“I’m digging through the trash and she hollers and says, ‘I found it,’” Ben said.

“She’s holding the shredder and she says, ‘I think the money is in here.’ We started laughing. We were just baffled that this could happen,” he added.

Jackee said she laughed and cried at the disaster she was holding in her hands, writes USA Today.

"Honestly in my heart, I said someday this is going to be really funny," Ben said.

Jackee added: "We have a lot of Leo moments. Most of them are just funny, and we laugh about them for days. This was one of those moments that wasn't his greatest, but we love him.”
