Fast forward to after supper time when the kids were tasked with cleaning up the entire kitchen and table, loading everything into the dishwasher and wiping down the table (isn't it great having little kids to help out?). E decided to be generous, and let Z have 3 licks of her ring pop.
He was so inspired by her kindness that he gave her a beaming smile, and told her "it's all right, E... you go play. I'm going to clean up the whole kitchen by myself for you !".
What sweet little things. See how a tiny speck of generosity (3 measely licks) can bring out the best in others? I love kids.
