Kindness always finds its way back to you

E came home from art class with a Ring-pop. Basically a HUGE diamond ring made out of candy.  She was so distraught over when to eat it because she didn't want to share, but she didn't want to wait until everyone was having naps tomorrow.

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.
