So here is the story,,,,
I am a single mom with 3 children, ages 13, 10 and an 8 year old who is special needs. And I am not embarassed to say that on average I make around 1200$ a month, I have always been low income and I make it work!!! My kids do well they have most of the stuff that the other kids have, nice clothes and are well fed....
So yesterday I was overhearing one of my daycare kids and my 10 year old having a conversation. Of course the topic of the month... CHRISTMAS
My daycare child is also 10, he was telling my son that at Christmas he gets 2 stockings for himself filled with toys and candies... so my 10 year old looks at him and smiles and says "thats ok one stocking is more than enough for me, I dont NEED 2 stockings". At this point my son starts talking about how sometimes he wishes that we had another computer in the house so he could play on his games (right now the computer is off-limits because its in my room ... along with all the unwrapped preasents lol). So my daycare child looks at him and says mater of factly " well just ask for one at Christmas". And my boy says "no I am not asking for a computer we already have one and they are very expensive" ,,,, then my daycare child says "you can get ANYTHING you want at christmas, i always get everything on my list!! and you can get a really good computer for ONLY around 1000$"..... at this point my son looks at him and says ... "you know rob, Christmas isnt about all the presents you get, its about spending time with your family, and i REALLY dont need a computer... I have my family and thats good enough for me."
OMG i have done something right!!!! I had tears in my eyes while i was standing at the sink doing dishes and listening to their conversation... How can a child be so smart beond his years ... man i love him!!!
My daughter on the other hand wants an I-phone for Christmas:grumble: at least one of them gets it!!!!:laugh:
