BOY's big heart...


One of BOY's teachers stopped me this afternoon as I was picking up BOY from school.


I have to share a story about BOY with you. Today, during class, we had a discussion about cars and what we should do with the cars that are not environmentally friendly. The kids talked about what they would do about these nonconforming cars, when THEY become President of the United States. One of BOY's friends said that all of those cars must be crushed. BOY burst into tears. He was SOOO....sad for the poor cars. His heart. Oh, the heart that your BOY has.

Having heart--you can't teach that.

So sweet. yesterday D7 was telling me about The Little Engine That Could and how he didn't like the part where the red engine dies -- because it was so sad.

They are such sweeties.

How sweet. He's an empathetic little soul. Great story. And what a wonderful teacher to see the beauty in that. Thanks for sharing it. :-)

Those big hearts are beautiful, but they can feel a lot of pain. I feel for you all ready.

What a sweetheart! And, how great that the teacher shared that story with you! I would have loved to hear the other kids ideas. Sounds like an interesting lesson.

What an empathetic boy. Sweet. I remember a moment when our son burst into tears at a moment in a Ren and Stimpy cartoon that was otherwise funny, but there was a character that was having his feelings hurt.

I thought you were going to say he was crying because his mommy's car was going to be crushed.

What a sweet kid.
