I wanted to share this story, basically because it made me feel good.
My 7-year old son had a Scholastic book fair at his school today - the kind of thing where kids bring money and get to buy books on display. We gave him some cash this morning and told him he could get what he wanted. So I came home from work tonight (long day and all that), and he says, "I got you something today, dad." He brings me what looks like a coloring book - it turns out it's a GIJoe coloring book. He told me that he knew how much I liked GIJoe so he bought me the book with the money we gave him.
That one little thing totally made my day.

That's what kids are for man.
One of my twin 3 year olds told his brother tonight he was his best friend on his own with no prodding from either my wife or I. Makes you smile and also keeps you from strangling them. :O
"Oh dear" said Pooh, as he punched the magazine release...

That is awesome! Nice to see he is paying attention. I wish my dog would bring me home a wave 10 figure MOC. Any of them. Seriously though, that is a great story. Congrats on having a little dude that thinks of things like that. Almost makes me wish I had kids just for that possibility. Almost...

That's great man! I have a son on the way and I hope I can teach him to be that thoughtful and selfless.

Children, ya gotta love 'em. They can drive you crazy sometimes....but then out of left field they do something so innocent and unselfish it restores your faith in mankind. Best thing I've ever done. Thanks for sharing.
