So, I logged in for him and he took my laptop into the other room. Ten minutes later he returned and handed me the computer, like nothing had happened. It was my birthday, so I didn't want to pry too much, and ruin anything he might be doing. Seven year olds need their privacy.
Two minutes later my phone alerted me that I had a new email, which was from Amazon....stating Loudoun wanted to redeem one of his wishlist items. When I opened the email, I saw the most gorgeous pair of purple, butterfly amethyst earrings. He had added them all on his own, no help from Daddy, and spent some of his hard earned chore points to get them for my birthday.
You see, he has been saving up his points for months now, his points goal 5,000 points, for a Nintendo 3DS. He's more than 1/2 way there, and he is so dedicated to wait it out and work for it.
For him to spend some of his points on his mama's birthday present, without even a second thought, just melts my heart.
