Ben Belnap decided to pay his parents back after they gifted him with season football tickets. He and his wife Jackee started socking away whatever cash they could and kept it in an envelope at their home in Holladay, Utah.

But just when they’d finally saved up enough cash to pay back their debt, Ben and Jackee realized the envelope — with $1,060 inside — was nowhere to be found.

In a frantic search for the missing funds, Ben and Jackee turned their home upside down. They checked under the couch cushions, opened every drawer, and went through every room.

The money was just… gone.

Then Jackee peeked inside the paper shredder… and there, inside the machine, were the remnants of their savings.

The $1,060 was torn to bits and pieces.

Ben and Jackee realized their 2-year-old son, Leo, was the guilty culprit. At first, the couple was overcome with shock and sadness. Jackee began to cry; all that time they spent saving up money, just for it to be destroyed in a matter of seconds.

But then the baffled parents saw the situation in a different light, putting a sweet and heartwarming twist on an otherwise frustrating situation.
