Kids do the darndest things -- like picking a winning lottery ticket and making mommy a millionaire. 

When two-year-old Anaya Hussain touched a New York Poker ticket inside a Brooklyn convenience store on January 30, her mother took it as a sign, according to the New York Daily News.

“If she didn’t touch it, I wouldn’t have taken it,” Hussain told the publication.  “She’s lucky.”

The 34-year-old stay-at-home mom soon learned just how lucky her inquisitive toddler was. Anaya had the Midas touch, apparently. Ahsan won a million bucks and will bank $31,152 annually until 2031.

“I am happy,” the Pakistani immigrant told the Daily News. "I'm going on vacation, but I have no idea where. I want to start a business too, a grocery store."

What she didn’t mention was whether Anaya would get a new toy or something for her lotto efforts. Perhaps she could get Big Wheel -- we hear they’re back in style.

Anaya’s winning touch may have had one other benefit: The tiny tike might have single-handedly dispelled the myth of the terrible twos, at least for the moment.
