A small glimps of the woman she will become

Scene: This morning, my car.

Morgan: Momma, can you buy me some new gloves, scarf and hat?

Me: Where'd yours go?

Morgan: I don't have any.

Me: Yeah, you do. I bought you a new set four days ago. The ones that match your coat. The ones you wore to school yesterday.

Morgan: Oh those. Well, I don't have them anymore.

Me: Did you leave them in your locker or in Auntie Kate's car yesterday?

Morgan: No, I just don't have them anymore.

Me: Morgan I am not in a playing mood today. Where exactly are your gloves, hat and scarf? Truth, NOW.

Morgan: I gave them to Lilian. But mommy, she didn't have any and her fingers were icicles and I asked her where her stuffs was and she said her mom didn't have money to buy her any. So I gave her mine.

Me: Oh I. You. I'm proud....

Morgan: Mama, you can buy me new ones right? You aren't mad?

Me: No baby, I'm not mad. I'll pick you up some new ones today. Honey, does Lilian have a coat?

Morgan: Yeah, she does. It's big, but cozy.

Me: Ok good. You did the right thing and I'm very proud of you. That's a sweet thing of you to do for your friend. But truth next time, okay?

Morgan: Yep, I promise.

My baby is growing up people. It makes me sad, but very proud of the person she is becoming. I thought six was the best age in the world. For her it has been. But seven seems to be pretty dam great too. Now excuse me while I go and call my entire family and tell them how awesome my kid is.

Oh I am such a sap. This made me cry. You must be sooo proud of her. She has a wonderful Christmas spirit :) Guess all that Van Morrison humming did her good, eh?? *wink*

Someday our little girls will change the world. Makes you feel good, doesn't it??

Awww. that is so sweet. That sounds like something my seven year old would do too (but she would sass me two seconds later.)

You're right, seven IS great. They are still little, but you can talk to them and they can talk to you and they are just flippin awesome. I wish EJ would be seven forever.

This speaks VOLUMES about her parents, as well as tells me what a compassionate little girl she is. You have every right to be so so proud.

Nicky was supposed to take a canned food for the Christmas baskets that his class is making. I told him to choose something out of the cabinet...he cleaned me out. He wanted to make sure no one was hungry. I had to take him to school because he couldn't lift his backpack...

HOly crap...can I buy her a pony or something???

This speaks the world about you and your hubby. And a huge amount about what she will be for the rest of life.

Good for all of you.

Seriously, I may buy her a pony or something. :)

and this is me crying, because your little lady is just like her momma -- generous and sympathetic and kind.

Maura said...

That was an incredibly sweet story, indeed. Thank you for raising an aware and generous little girl -- the world could use more of them.

Aww, I wish more adults were like that. She's a good kid.
