To Help With Your Face

I was sitting with Leo at our kitchen table while he counted his birthday money.

Leo: “$110. I’m lucky AND rich, right Mom?”

Me: “Yes, you are. What are you going to do with all that money?”

Leo: “I’m going to buy everything in the dollar store and give it to poor people and animals.”

Me: “Awwwww! That’s awesome! I love that you’re thinking about other people.”

Leo: “Wait- if I spend all my money I won’t have any money.”

Me: “Right.”

Leo: “I might want to buy something for me, though. I think I’ll give some poor guy $1 and buy dog food for a dog on the street. I bet I’ll still have enough left over for a Wii game AND Jesus will be glad I shared my money. You want some money, Mom? You can buy some makeup to help with your face.”
