"Thank God in heaven there's school tomorrow," my five-year-old son sighed yesterday. That's what a private, Catholic school education gets you...
His excitement centered around the arrival of these:
The very ones he worked and slaved and toiled for...OK...not really. He did work hard, but well-meaning friends were fairly easy with their money for any task performed. And the shoes arrived today.
He was up, dressed and ready to go at 6:15 in the freakin' morning today. Ready to show off his shoes to the world. However, I will admit. He seems especially happy about these shoes because 1) they light up and 2) he earned the money himself. It's so sweet to see a little boy take so much pride in himself. Here's hoping it's a learned lesson he'll remember.
