Things My Kids Say Thursday #7

Sometimes my son says things that come out of left field and make me laugh. But sometimes he speaks wisdom without even realizing it.

The other day he had taken note of all the long hours my husband had been putting in at work, and his observation really showed his heart.

Son: “(Dad) works so hard everyday and all he gets is money.”

When we work hard we think, ‘yes! What will my paycheck look like?!’ But my young son reminded me with this one comment that money of any amount is of minimal value. I love how he looks at his dad and sees a man he believes should be rewarded with so much more than money, and also that he sees there is greater reward to be had in life than money.

Thanks for the fresh perspective, Bubby!

  1. My grandchildren have spoken many such words of wisdom over the years. They are precious, are they not? I love to listen to them talk and play with each other. And, sometimes they come up with the funniest things to say, too, and they make me laugh. And, that is good! Your son sounds like a very wise young man, and so sensitive to others, too. I know you must be very proud of him.
