Tear-jerking Generosity

This little story made me cry. I was walking my kindergartner home from school. As usual, I asked him how his day went, who he sat with at lunch, and who he played with at recess.

He said, “I didn’t play with anyone at recess.” I asked why, and he explained that he waited in line almost the whole time for one of the swings.

So I asked, “Did ya have fun swinging?” But he said no. I asked why.

He said, “Well, I only got to swing for 5 seconds. Right after I got on, my friend Andrew asked if he could have a turn, and I let him.”

My little guy. We talked about giving to friends after we take a turn, rather than giving up our turn.
