DS#1 is six. He knows that Christmas is around the bend. The "Gimme Gimme's" are starting to rear their ugly, greedy little heads. We try and instill the value of "Giving is better than recieving", but when your six those are hard words to swallow. Case in point, my son's question to me today. "Mom, when you go to prison and we lose our house and they send me to live in a poor country, can I get a Christmas child shoebox then?" "No", was my reply. "Why not?!?" he asks, totally shocked that I said no. "Because, I don't plan on going to prison." Where do they come up with this stuff?
For anyone interested, "Operation Christmas Child" is an awesome relief program that delivers shoeboxes full of treats to underprivillaged children around the globe. You can find out more about them here: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/
