Flowers for Mommy

Okay so I have to brag a little bit about the cutest little boy in the whole world, Cooper! Last week we started giving him chores to do and if he does them for the week then he gets his allowance of $1.00 on Saturday. His chores include cleaning up his plate after all meals, sweeping the floor after him and the girls and picking up all the toys at the end of the day and putting them in the correct places. He has been doing a great job. Anyway, yesterday he got his first dollar and we went to a local farmers market. We were looking around and next thing he saw a little stand where they were selling flowers. We saw him reach into his pocket and pull his dollar out and then we watched to see what he was going to do. He walked up to the lady and said he would like to buy some flowers then showed her exactly which ones he wanted (they were $2 but he didn't know that) he told her he just got his first allowance(as he is waving his dollar bill in the air) for doing chores and he wanted to buy these flowers for his mommy.....we just sat behind him and let him do all the talking and watched (so proudly of course!) She wrapped them up and gave them to him and he ran over to me and said "Mommy these are for you!" Good thing I had big sunglasses on b/c I had tears running down my face!! These are the moments in life that we will never forget, I felt appreciated by my 3 1/2 year old. It is and was the best feeling ever.
