The other day Firecracker and I were driving and we passed a homeless person asking for money. Firecracker asked me why the man was there.
I tried to explain to him that sometimes people don't have a house, food or money so they ask others to help them by giving them money. Firecracker then asked why the man didn't have any money. I told him because the man most likely didn't have a job. Daddy has a job and that is how we buy food and pay for our house.
After a few quiet, thoughtful moments Firecracker piped up and said, "Mommy, I have a lot of money in my piggy bank". I said, "yes, buddy you have money in your bank." (I wasn't sure where he was going with this). Then he said, "yep, and I could give that man my money."
Oh my goodness!! Melt this Mama's heart!!!! My boy may be a crazy person sometimes, but he's loveable and loving. He is learning to be compassionate and I'm so proud of him.
Have a great day!
