Jack: I’m so excited! On Monday we get our charity bookmarks!
me: Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Are you excited that I let you buy one?
Jack: Yes! It has a heart on it for Valentine’s Day and the money helps people.
me: That’s good to know, isn’t it?
Jack: Yeah…and the man from the charity visited me today.
me: Oh wow, that’s nice. Did he talk to your class or something?
Jack: No. I said he visited ME!
me: As in, just you and no one else?
me: Why? How did that happen? Was it in your class?
Jack: It was because on my heart I wrote I was grateful for his family.
Jack: We got to hang up hearts with what we’re grateful for on them.
me: Ohhhh, like you could put “I’m grateful for my Mom, or something…”? (hint hint)
Jack: Yeah, but I was grateful to his family for doing the charity, otherwise those people won’t have any money for food and stuff.
me: That’s really nice of you. How did he find you though? I’m confused.
Jack: He saw my heart and asked my teacher which one of us did that and she said it was me so he came and talked to me about how I was being nice and helping people.
me: Ohhh that must have made you feel really proud Jack. I’m glad he came to talk to you…that was really nice.
Jack: I know! It was a pretty good day.
me: Were there any other good parts?
Jack: Yeah, me and Wesley talked about how we’re gonna smash our trays tomorrow at lunch.
Jack: No, it’s okay Mom. They’re made out of styrofoam and it’s okay to jump on them.
me: Uh NOOO, how do you go from being so GOOD to being so disruptive. Do not jump on… (he walks away muttering to himself)
Jack: Gotta remember to wear my Sketchers tomorrow. Hard bottoms…
