When we got in line, a gentleman was behind us. Underfoot kept asking for a kite. Over and over again with a different convincing plea. I kept saying no to each insisting request. We paid for our things and got out the door. In the mean time, the gentleman (who only has to buckle himself) got in his car and pulled up next to us.
He then rolled down his window and said, "You are being a good Mom. Keep it up. You are raising two good boys. God bless." He smiled and then drove away. It took a moment to sink in what he said. He made my juggling trip to the store worth it.
I hope that other Moms know they are doing a good job! Keep it up!
