This happened a few weeks ago...but I never want to forget it. And if something happens to me I want someone to share the story with Nate.
Before Christmas Nate decided he wanted to go Christmas shopping. This was a big surprize. Because Nate had been only worried about getting for himself for Christmas. Ben had worked hard and earned money then got a shopping day with Mommy. Let me take a moment here to explain something about the generous Ben...he went and bought two nice Lego sets "for his brothers"<---which he planned "to help" them build. Then he went on to the Dollar Tree to find treasures for the other important people in his life :-)
Now Nate suddenly decided he needed to do Christmas shopping. We started and ended at the Dollar Tree--I have learned that my money is really easy to spend! He started his Christmas shopping with a few things for himself ;-P then took alot of time picking out the gifts for others.
As we left he had the biggest winning smile on his face and he said " Mom...this has been the greatest day of my life! You did the money and I did the shopping!"
I know honey...it was one of the greatest days of my life too! I love you Nate.
