I have a good kid

Today Zack did something so sweet that I have to share it.

We went to Barnes and Noble today with his older brother, Ryan (both big boys are home for a couple of weeks). Zack went to the train table to play, and another boy was there, age almost 3, and they very happily played with the trains and then some stuffed dragons that were there.

Earlier, Zack had chosen a sticker book. They had a "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" deal so of course I had him pick three.

He decided that he wanted to give the little boy, whose name was Connor, a sticker book. I asked if he was sure, that he understood that once he gave it to him, he couldn't take it back, it was a little different than sharing, and he said yes.

So we went up to the front, paid, and then Zack ran like hell back to the kid's section to give Connor and his surprised mom the sticker book.

I am soooo proud of my little guy. For the LONGEST time, he had SUCH trouble sharing, and even now, it's hit or miss. But he's improved SO much in SO many ways. This just touched my heart, and I thought it might touch yours.


  1. What a great thing he did.

    Tell him I admire his maturity!
    And when he asks (if he asks what maturity is) tell him I think he is a wonderful young man!

    For a little boy to share, that is GREAT!
