Lolly: Well, sweetie, one nickel is five cents. So what would the total be?
Anna: Is it three?
Lolly: Hmmm. No, a nickel has five cents in it. It's like five pennies.
Anna: Can I look at a nickel?
Lolly: Sure. *finds a nickel and hands it to Anna*
Anna: Mommy, who is that on the nickel?
Lolly: It's Thomas Jefferson.
Anna: Ow wow, Mommy. He's really really handsome. *stares off dreamily*
Yeah. Anna just expressed her first crush. On a nickel. Not sure what's more disturbing, the fact that it involves a founding father, or the fact that she just basically just got a crush on currency.
What a dreamboat.
(That joke would be so, SO much less creepy if I hadn't come out last summer.)

We can't blame our sweet daughter for the strangeness of her celebrity crush. After all, her mother has a crush on... this.
