Hugs and kisses...

I took my baby boy to get new glasses today...He broke his old pair on Sunday. So, anyway, we're looking at frames and I can't for the life of me figure out why it's taking so long for my 14 year old son to pick out a stylish pair of frames. So, about 20 minutes into looking he brings me this pair of frames and asks what I think. "Hmmm...not really you" I tell him. They're not what he usually picks out. And I ask him why do you like those? He says " I just do". So I show him a few more stylish frames that I think he'll like and he says "Mom, these frames are only $50.00, I will take these". I thought I would cry right there in the eyeglass store.

My son, the one that gives me a hard time about everything actually realizes that money doesn't grow on trees and has noticed my string of bad luck lately and CARES!!

I think I'm the proudest mom on earth today. I am doing alright, doing a pretty good job of raising my hard headed boy. He cares about something other than himself. He cares about me and my stress level. He was trying to help me by taking the cheap frames and saving me some money.

Well, after a couple of hugs and kisses and my telling him how proud I am of him, we picked out a stylish, moderately priced set of glasses for him. They look quite nice I think. And as I wrote the check for them he said "Thanks Mom! I love you" and I got more kisses.

This is a big deal and anyone who has a 14 year old I'm sure will agree.

VERY big deal. My daughter has been taught and fully appreciates the value of a dollar. Maybe it'll rub off on me someday, lol.
