I never leave your blog without a tear in my eye and a smile on my face. How do you do that? It's amazing how much they notice when we don't realize they're paying attention. Love this, friend.

What a sweet little boy you have!!! And so awesome of him to take notice off all you do and help out where he thought he could.
Wow! I just found you from the Hump Day hook up and I'm a new fan. This was a wonderful story. I so <3 your son. Looking forward to reading more posts!
Aww... that's so sweet! He sounds like a beautiful soul! Thanks for hooking up to the Hump Day Hook Up Michelle :)
A great post - there's nothing better than watching your kids (eventually) discover compassion! Shared it over on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Partycraft-Secrets/239045209469228
So sweet!! This is the second post of yours I've read today, and that has made me cry...I am pregnant, but still! My nine year old has recently started making breakfast for his brothers on the weekends so Mom and Dad can sleep in! He's even made breakfast for us...it's so wonderful and exciting to see your children exhibit kindness and empathy.
It's best to let kids learn a chore or two around the house when they are young and willing. By the the time they enter their teenage years, they won't be so ready to volunteer. My younger son used to help with mopping the floor when he was a teenager. He used hot water to do it.
I had tears in my eyes over this post ..honestly the FIRST TIME a blog ever made ME CRY!! Just at how sweet your child is n how much he reminds me of my three year old...the younger they r the more they seem to LEAD WITH THE HEART almost ...enjoy these memories n print your posts, so they can LAST A LIFETIME!!! I wouldn't want to ever forget something like this in my old age LOL
This is such a wonderful, heart-warming post... Thank-you! I was nearly in tears reading it and you must be so incredibly proud of your little man. What an amazing family you have. I look forward to reading more.
What a great story! What a wonderful kid! You are clearly doing something right, and I love the image of the fooling around night. I miss those days!!!! Here is one little story from my Mommy days. For Mother's day, when my boys were 8 and 10, they decided to write me a poem and type it up. They used our old Mac desktop computer, and wrote this: "If every time you taught us something Another tree would grow; The world would be a forest Full of things to know." They put in clip art pictures of kids and trees. Its still hanging on my classroom wall, a dozen years later. sniff
What a beautiful comment - thank you SO much. I do treasure these moments (because, trust me - there are many hair-tearing-out ones in-between!) Have a great weekend!
