Treasured Moment

I picked Lucas up from preschool and looked in his bin for any paperwork. Today he had a headband in his bin. I asked him why. This was our conversation.

L: "It's for Kayla."

M: "Did you get it from the treasure box?"

L: "Yeah. I picked it out for Kayla."

M: "Oh so if you picked this out of the treasure box for Kayla then you didn't get anything for yourself?"

L: "I just get something every day (they don't get the treasure box every day; I think he meant each time it's his turn for the treasure box) from the treasure box and pick something for myself. I just wanted to get something for Kayla to have."

When we got home the 'mail lady' - as Lucas calls her - was just coming by so Lucas ran down the driveway to get the mail. He still had the headband in his hand and held it up to show her saying, "I got this for my sister!" So proud of himself.

Later on I asked him again why he got that from the treasure box for Kayla and he said "Because I wanted to be nice and give Kayla something and see if she will like it and wear it for a long long time."

Yeah. Definitely one of those treasured moments I'll want to remember!
