Today I walked you to class as usual, but it was a big day in the life of a first-grader. Today you were allowed to bring money to school to shop at the Reward Cart if you behaved well. As you walked up to class with your four quarters, proud as anything you saw your classmate crying. She had forgotten her money so you handed her two of your quarters. My heart almost exploded with pride right there, and I walked back to the car choked up at what a sweet soul you are. But that wasn't it. You got off the bus and ran through the door, calling for your sister to show her the frog you picked out for her. At which point I turned into a weeping mess, and told you I have never loved you more.
