The Best Birthday Present

Hannah: "Spence, what do you want me to get you for your birthday?"

Spencer: "Uh, I don't know. How much money do you have?"

Hannah: "I don't know cause Mama packed my piggybank."

Spencer: "Hmmmm."

Hannah (starting to cry a little): "But I just don't know what to get you!"

Spencer: "I know what I want! I want YOU for my birthday!"

Hannah: "ME????"

Spencer: "Yeah, cause you're cute, and you're sweet, and I really like playing with you."

A little boy who thinks like that can have anything he wants.

HIs birthday isn't until next Saturday, but because of the move we've bribed him with a movie and sleepover with two buddies for tonight. He's so excited! And so, so sweet.

Thanks for letting me brag!

That's awesome! Let's see... the conversation in my house would have been more like... "What present? I'm not getting you a present!" followed by "YOU HAVE TO! It's MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!" Yeah. That's how it would have gone down at our house...

What a great big brother he is! He is wise beyond his years. How on earth can he be celebrating his 7th birthday already?? Hope he has the best time ever.
